Quad nations at risk

Quad nations need the US to be their ally. They face risk associated with threats by Chinese Communist Party. 

The foreign ministers from the Indo-Pacific nations, known as the Quad group comprising the US, Japan, India and Australia, met in Tokyo on Tuesday in what was their first in-person talks since the Covid pandemic began.

The meeting took place in the backdrop of China’s aggressive military behaviour in the Indo-Pacific, South China Sea and along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh. “The Indians are seeing 60,000 Chinese soldiers on their northern border… Quad nations have real risk associated with the threats imposed by the Chinese Communist Party,” said Pompeo. — PTI
