5:04 am
that is going into taiwan, which may continue at the level if there is a perception of a threat from the chinese side. it's been in the east as well. as far as the united states is concerned, president barack obama, who is hosting the azian world, the association of south-east nation's in california. before the news came out, was saying that the united states would press ahead with the policy of ensuring freedom of navigation, that the close sales by the naval vessels seemed destined to continue close to the islands in that china said are its. and the basis, extending the footprint. now it seems placing military weaponry. >> with the ongoing challenges in that part of the world, the u.s. seeing a need to make a show of strength. tell us about that. >> that's right, here on the
5:05 am
korean peninsula in the united states, they have owned four stealth fighters, low over the air space and touching down at a u.s. air base in south korea. that is to a large degree, in fact, a response to the nean's actions -- north korean's actions, the nuclear reaction. the u.s. is saying it's showing its willingness to defend its ally in south korea. it was also a projection generally of the u.s. military presence in this region, and the leadership in beijing will be watching closely. >> thank you. let's condition with the director of chiba national -- china national association of international studies, and with the foreign military of foreign affairs. help us to understand what the official chinese statement was
5:06 am
saying when official talks about this being the westmeadia looking for a story, is beijing denying it had a missile on the islands in. >> frankly, i don't think anyone should make a big issue out of the situation. on the chinese islands in, china has the right to do whatever it wants, including a military presence. the islands in have been manned by china, militarily. including the air force. if anywhere in the world, anywhere in the world says that china in possession of the islands in has sovereign right to build up a military presence, including anti-air missile systems, i think that person is out of mind. >> my question is what do you understand the official statement to mean. is it to confirm or deny that it
5:07 am
will put missiles on the islands in? >> i read the statement from the chinese prime minister carefully. i think his objective - he said it is a recent development, secondly, he said that it include the western media, should focus objectively on the overall situation. $has been civil -- there has been civilian use. that's for sure, and this should not be ignored by international media. if china, with a military presence on the islands, and could not be surprising. china has built airplane railways, 3,000 meters long. do you think it's only for the show of the air strike or it's intended for other purposes. i think the rest of the world should be prepared if china puts in more and more of a presence over there. i think the foreign minister in
5:08 am
china will do that, whenever it comes along. >> the u.s. pacific commander is not feeling that way. he seems surprised. he says if missiles had been placed on the islands in, it meantime that the president broke his ward, he did not demilitarized the islands in. what do you make of that? >> militarizing the south china sea. is china or the united states. the united states is thousands of miles away from the south china sea. china has every right, tells the islands in and atolls, as the united states, which can detach aeroplanes, war planes, bombers not only to the south china sea, but within 12 miles of the territorial waters of the chinese controlled islanders. china feels a lot of pressure piled up by the united states, and china wants measures accordingly to deal with the
5:09 am
threat. i think it should be put to the united states. what is the implementation of the states, looking to shelter with china, militarily over any island in the south china tale. it makes it. china is not afraid of the united states. i don't think china will back down soon, when we are faced with pressure on the south china sea. >> what is china's goal, is it to downplay the east's preps, control the shipping lane. must be to do with the construction work that's going on in the island. >> first, ever since the end of the world war ii, japan, after being militarily defeated. according to the arrangement with the allied forces, mainly

5:11 am
through some of these countries to innocent vice them to come into more and more of an area with china, china is prepared to deal with that. the united states really need to stand and under the consequences in the brent seabrook, and accuse china of being the culprit party in the escalation. >> thank you so much. >> thank you for having me. >> a woman is being arrested after 30 hours beneath the ruins of the northern province of idlib, doctors without borders says two others were wounded but alive. rescue workers have been searching what is left of the building. it is among two schools that were bombed. russia is rejecting accusations its debts were responsible.
