US, Japan, India and Australia Leaders Discuss Conflicts in Tokyo

The leaders of the United States, Japan, India and Australia will meet in Tokyo on Tuesday about the increasing threat from China to Taiwan and the conflict in Ukraine.


There is also talk about corona vaccines and the climate.

On Monday, US President Joe Biden said the US would help Taiwan if China attacks the island. Australia in particular has also regularly spoken out in recent months against increasing Chinese influence in the region.

For Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, it is his first trip abroad. He was sworn in as prime minister on Monday and was able to go to Tokyo for consultations almost immediately.

The so-called ‘Quad’ met for the first time in 2007 and has consulted regularly since then. By working together, the countries want to counterbalance the increasing Chinese influence around the Pacific Ocean.
