Singapore: Singapore’s Foreign Affairs and Law Minister K Shanmugam is currently in Washington DC for a week of meetings with key US leaders, but he has also spoken in a slightly more unusual setting – the American Jewish Committee Global Forum.

The forum has become something of a platform for international figures to air their views on world events, and Mr Shanmugam used his address to discuss the need for the US to deal with a rising China.

The forum is a chance for Jews from across the US and the world to come together to meet leading international figures, and discuss their views on global events.
