If it goes as planned, this will be the first time these four leaders have met face-to-face. This will also be the time when the rest of the countries listen to US President Biden talk directly about working with allies in their strategy in the region.

QUAD has long been understood as a dialogue mechanism aimed at countering China’s influence in Asia.

According to the newspaper South China Morning Post, When asked about the meeting, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian called on the US and its allies to “give up the winning mentality”.
