Foreign Minister of India S.K. Jaishankar Prasad said before his Tokyo tour that he would not hesitate to strengthen his relations with democratic countries. Please tell that Jaishankar will leave for a two-day visit to Japan on 6 October. Jai Shankar is going to Tokyo, Japan’s capital, to join the ‘Quadrilateral Security Dialogue’. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will travel to Tokyo to attend the second ministerial meeting of the group ‘Quad’ from India, Japan, Australia and the United States, but will not travel to Mongolia and South Korea as planned. The Ministry of External Affairs has given this information.
The Quad is a platform for informal strategic dialogue between India, the US, Japan and Australia. A senior official aware of the government’s views on the issue said, “India has no objection to formally implementing the Quad Dialogue with the US, Japan and Australia as foreign countries bordering UNGA in 2019 Negotiations have already been in place since 2017 with the meeting of ministers. If the other three members want to institutionalize the dialogue, India is ready to participate. “
China is upset
China is so upset with this dialogue that it has said about the group of these four countries that it is a factionalism. China can try to put diplomatic pressure on these countries. US Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs David Stillwell said last Friday, “The Quad strives to establish, promote and protect Indo-Pacific principles, especially when the People’s Republic of China strategy, Aggression, and increased coercion in the area. “
Can create diplomatic pressure
It is believed that China may try to exert diplomatic pressure on the group, even after the US Secretary of State tweeted before going to Tokyo to say the Chinese Communist Party’s reckless economic policies and ruthless repression of environmental activists China’s environmental disasters occurred as a result. The world cannot tolerate the CCP model of economic development. In a series of tweets on 3 October, Pompeo said that China illegally exploits natural resources around the world, threatening the world’s economy.
