Tensions between China and the U.S. were front and center at the Shangri-La Dialogue. What is the path forward? 

The yearly security conference for the Asia Pacific, held in Singapore, is known as the Shangri-La Dialogue. But there was not much dialogue, at least directly, between China and the United States. Chinese State Councilor and Defense Minister, Li Shangfu, elaborated on China’s security initiative, while warning against instability in the region.
