US Defence Secretary James Mattis has warned that they will not accept China's militarisation of man-made islands in the South China Sea.

Speaking at a security conference in Singapore, he said such moves undermined regional stability.

China's territorial claims in the resource-rich South China Sea are contested by several nations.

At the same time, General Mattis praised Beijing's efforts to restrain North Korea's missile and nuclear activity.
