New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit the United States for the UN General Assembly. In addition to addressing the rally, Prime Minister Modi will also attend the first face-to-face meeting of the QUAD, hosted by US President Joe Biden. The QUAD meeting is of great significance in the context of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan and the Chinese activities in the Indo-Pacific region. This has provoked a backlash from China. The Chinese Foreign Ministry said that a group targeting another country will never be popular and has no future.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will hold bilateral talks with President Joe Biden at the White House on September 23. This information was given by the Ministry of External Affairs of India. On September 24, President Biden will convene a meeting of QUAD’s heads of state. For the first time, the heads of state of India, the United States, Japan and Australia will hold face-to-face talks during the summit. All QUAD countries are beginning to feel the need to strengthen their cooperation to prevent China’s hegemonic actions in the Indo-Pacific region. The Biden administration, which took a liberal and lenient stance on China, is also crucial to QUAD cooperation.
China is warning Taiwan and other small nations not to believe in the United States. It says that the United States is no longer a superpower, following the US-led withdrawal from Afghanistan. While China is openly threatening small countries in the South China Sea region; it says that the US will leave you alone if the conflict erupts. Thus, the US leaders and military officials take it seriously. Opposition groups are making vitriolic criticism that this results from the embarrassing US military withdrawal from Afghanistan. In such a situation, it has become imperative for President Biden to show that he is taking an aggressive stance against China by increasing QUAD cooperation.
This is the background to the QUAD meeting convened by the President of the United States. But China criticized the announcement of the QUAD meeting. Zhao Lijian, the spokesman for China’s Foreign Ministry, presented an idealistic thought that countries should not Cooperate for targeting a country; this cooperation will neither be popular nor will it have a future. Thus, the narrow geopolitical concepts from the Cold War mentality should be abandoned. The Chinese response has once again shown that QUAD cooperation is upsetting China.
