7:23 pm
a fellow at the rajaratnam school of international studies his rise kite from singapore very good to have you with us on al-jazeera again how high would you say is a risk today of military conflict in the south china sea. in my assessment and i think of all those of us often as you just agree with me the probability or what escalation in the books an escalation is unprecedented lee harvey it's not just about the rising rhetoric on all sides of the table spirits well you know chinese like there are a piece of the top in assault charges but it's also the military developments on don't your reporters covered that are also a great concern so i think it would be something that special attention to going forward and what role is the u.s. playing in this dispute precisely. well i think the general consensus is that. significant u.s.
7:24 pm
military presence in the region is generally a good thing because it made. the room full of all of us the abilities of the force including the state those who are right now are just sort of holding the fort here in the in the u.s. brings a very strong amount of military capability with the right intention most of all those within the urban sultans particular can agree on that but i think the. concern is that with all the hustle and bustle going on in the waters of the south and it's all about deliberate intent to well to trigger a war or but really it's about inadvertent escalation what i mean by this is that there's just so much are going on in the waters of the south china sea that it's very easy for all of this is that. are our call our ships on to comments who are competition with each other and so if these complications or the mishaps are not intended it's very easy for the it's. too far out of control.
7:25 pm
that's the real concern so how do you manage it then this conflict has as remain unresolved for decades now and i read that an agreement is being worked on are on who would govern conduct in the size china sea but can a multilateral deal that would involve all the countries that have an interest in the region really work all would be bilateral agreements between countries that say between malaysia and china for instance be more effective. i do recall sitting on the fence you know i think it would have to be for i think some of the multilateral initiatives in particularly when you're referring to with the court of conduct of the parties in the south china sea that needs to be. nice to be firmed up and ratified by all parties equally find of and this document has been in the works for for so many years in eagle is and follows the common good is to come to it and help people to sign up. at a c i don't cause i can go bilateral
7:26 pm
discussions are taking to my mind clearly china has been using the bilateral approach to unravel multilateral initiatives real against china's interests so our it is important for the bilateral discussions of commons alignment with the multilateral discussions right now i think that's not happening so we have a series of discussions on a bilateral level particularly with some of the other countries in that it will try to guard cambodia example that i used the song more work to try to cite because of the kind of kinds of sticks and carrots that china uses at its disposal to try and influence of course some of the smaller states in the region so this alignment needs to be to be achieved and i think that's going to be the work ahead for the region this year graham on web thank you so much for a insights thank you for joining us on just there are. now 2 nigeria where so-called mega schools have been opened in the northeast are taking around 50000
