very much for shedding some more light on this very important story for us in jan egeland from the norwegian refugee council. and u.s. is accuse china of deploying high end weapons systems in the south china sea to intimidate its neighbors these comments by defense secretary jim mattis jewish from the chinese general who called them sponsible speaking as an international security conference in singapore where the korean peninsula took center stage ahead of donald trump's plan summit with kim jong un sky there are reports. the focus of the high level discussions here at the shangri-la dialogue all came down to one plane in salon u.s. secretary of defense jim that is just hours after president donald trump confirmed the u.s. north korea summit was back on june twelfth here in singapore made something very clear that the number of u.s. troops in south korea is something that will not be discussed if we can restrict or
7:11 pm
confidence building measures with with something verifiable then of course these kinds of issues can come up subsequently between two sovereigns democracies the republic of korea and the united states but it is that issue is not on the table here and singapore on the twelfth. that adds weight to comments from trump that it's unlikely that a major breakthrough will come after just one meeting also hear the shangri-la dialogue the defense ministers from japan and south korea both spoke about the upcoming summit but with guarded optimism saying it's a historic first step down the right path but north korea cannot be rewarded just for dialogue concrete actions are needed south korea was more conciliatory toward kim jong un urging patience with the north koreans for clinton well because just because we have been tricked by north korea before does not guarantee that we will be tricked in the future if we start to think like this we can never negotiate with
7:12 pm
them and we can never look to achieve peace with them for all and also on saturday secretary mabus described china's buildup in the south china sea as militarization used for intimidation and coercion and i think this the matter. i was doing that simply to remind everybody that the geopolitical chess board struggles across the pacific is extremely large in a lot of moving parts and the current korean peninsula crisis is just one portion of the chess board clearly a red line or several red lines have been crossed and the u.s. is now hitting back at these diplomatically trying to defend it it's actually sitting with the u.s. and their allies are doing is simply being matched for now the countdown to the much anticipated summit in ten days remains in the spotlight scott other al-jazeera singapore is known for pushing the envelope with nuclear threats and warnings of war but this time kim jong un is getting attention for his actual envelopes on friday the north korean need to send his former spy chief to hand deliver
7:13 pm
a letter to u.s. president donald trump as they prepare for a historic summit but it's the size of the less air that's got social media buzzing get was almost as large as a folded newspaper defense analyst adam ounce jess at the north koreans have. well they have trump figured out he says because it's the size of a prize check in a t.v. game show for years the president was the star of the reality show the apprentice the old fourth would asked are we sure that it is really that big or a trump's hands just that small and the tokyo bureau chief for the washington post and fyfield tweeted when it comes to nuclear buttons and now to envelopes size apparently matters trumps all anyone who got supersized mail though kim sent a similar to suit the south korean president when he held talks with the north korean media sister during the winter olympics. still ahead for you on the program
