Preparations have been completed to encircle the Chinese dragon showing Dadagiri from the South China Sea to eastern Ladakh. In a significant development, Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morison has announced that soon the heads of the Quad member countries will hold a virtual meeting. This is going to be the first time that US President Joe Biden, Prime Minister of India PM Modi, Prime Minister of Australia Scott Morrison, and Prime Minister of Japan Yoshihide Suga are meeting together under the quad.
Australia’s Prime Minister Mauritian said that the Quad was very important for the Indian Pacific region from the US and our understanding. We are looking at this together with the partner countries of ASEAN. I look forward to the first meeting of the Quad leaders. He said, ‘This will be the first meeting of its kind. I have had bilateral talks with PM Modi and the Japanese Prime Minister regarding this. I look forward to this conversation and the subsequent face-to-face meeting. It has become a feature of cooperation in the Indo-Pacific region.
China names the organization Indo-Pacific NATO
Mauritian said that it would be an organization of four leaders and four countries working together for the peace and prosperity of the Indo-Pacific region which would be good for all the people of the region. This announcement by the Prime Minister of Australia is sure to provoke China, which considers this organization against itself. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, who never tired of making fun of the Quod, has named the organization Indo-Pacific NATO.
Wang Yi has alleged that the US is militarizing the region. Which can have fatal consequences. In Malaysia’s capital, Kuala Lumpur, he said recently that strategic cooperation between the United States, Japan, Australia, and India is part of Washington’s efforts to build Indo-Pacific NATO. He warned that this initiative would undermine regional security.
Wang Yi has been making fun of the first quad
Wang Yi has always made fun of Quod before this. He had earlier said that the quad is an idea thrown in the garbage. This idea will end on its own like sea foam. However, in the second meeting of this organization, China’s senses are blown away by the positive attitude of the member countries. Chinese media is also saying various kinds of provocative things about the quad.
Know what is a quad
The Quadrilateral Security Dialogue (Quad) was started in the year 2007. However, it started in the year 2004–2005 when India extended a helping hand after the tsunami that hit many countries in Southeast Asia. Four countries in the quad include the United States, Japan, Australia, and India. In March, the Quad also had a meeting regarding the Coronavirus. For the first time in this, New Zealand, D. Korea, and Vietnam also joined. Ever since the formation of this group, China has been irritated and has been consistently opposing it. Amid the ongoing military tensions in Ladakh, China’s official newspaper Global Times continues to threaten India. At the same time, the edict is that India should stay away from the Quad and follow its policy of non-alignment.
