A visit by China's Defense Minister Wei Fenghe to countries in the Southeast Asian region has raised concerns over what China's strategy is to allay tensions in the South China Sea. We speak to Ridzwan Rahmat, Principle Defence Analyst at Janes, an open-source defence intelligence company, for his thoughts on the timing of the visit, and how it will impact the upcoming ASEAN Summit, where US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will be in attendance.
