Beijing, October 4: Long-standing problems with China with the quad nations and growing concerns over new strategic shifts in the Indo-Pacific prompted the bloc to maintain peace and stability in the Indo-Pacific while sending a veiled message to China. sent to It was mentioned in a joint statement, media reports said.
All Quad members, including India, the United States, Australia and Japan, have historical troubles with an ambitious China seeking to pursue its expansionist goals. First is India. India and China have several disputes along the 2,167-mile Sino-Indian border, Diplomat reported. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the quad summit is an opportunity to check the progress of the initiative.
Relations between China and other Quad members are also strained. As for Japan, there is an ongoing dispute over the sovereignty of the Japanese-administered Senkaku and Diaoyu islands. China claims the islands are part of its territory, The Diplomat reports.

Australia is next. A security pact with China on the Solomon Islands irritates Australia. Australia is wary of Solomon Island’s close ties with China. And the final member of the quad is the United States, the world’s oldest democracy.
The United States and China are fighting over the status of the Taiwan Strait. The United States has sent a clear message that it will use military force if the situation in Taiwan changes.
China, on the other hand, insists that Taiwan has always been and will always be a part of it. All of these long-standing issues of China with members of the Quad firmly direct the individual attention of each Quad nation’s militaries to China.
All of these historical conflicts and emerging strategic concerns pose a threat to the status quo and must be viewed as potential catalysts for future conflicts.
Another thing is the observation that there is a large disparity in military power between China and Taiwan, which makes me wonder how well the small island nation can stand up to the People’s Liberation Army (PLA).
Ladakh, on the other hand, is part of a quad nation, bordered only by the actual Line of Control drawn as a result of the only conflict fought between India and China.
The Quad, like NATO, uses this forum and has long expressed its intention to foster greater cooperation among its four democratic members: Australia, India, Japan and the United States.
There are multiple areas in which the quad nations are involved in the latest summit of governments to be held in May 2022.
A joint statement issued after the Quad meeting revealed their commitment not only military, but to mutual measures taken in supplying the COVID-19 vaccine and addressing climate issues. The bloc wants to work together on diverse fronts to form close alliances and curb China’s dominance on the world stage.
