China under pressure at Asia summit due to South China sea island building.
The Philippines produced photos where it showed the fresh construction done by the Chinese.
The artificial island can be a game changer for china as it will be easy for them to control the south china sea.
Beijing insists it has not started building development in full swing.
But the Philippines released images which it said showed Chinese ships in the area that were capable of dredging sand and other activities required to build an artificial island.
China claims nearly all of the South China Sea, through which $5 trillion in trade passes annually.
Tension has built in the area as China has started building islands which are a great strategic location and can also support military operations.
They took control over the south china sea in the year 2012 and they have started development in full force.
Expanding that presence with a military outpost is vital to achieving China's ambitions of controlling the sea, according to security analysts.
US president Barack Obama have also in the earlier meeting warned the Chinese president to stop development.
As further development can bring in the rise of great tension between the Philippines China and the US.
