The Quadrilateral Security Dialogue Summit was held in Tokyo on Tuesday, and US President Joe Biden, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and newly elected Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese issued a joint statement declaring a “strong commitment to a free, open, inclusive and resilient Indo-Pacific.” UPI reported on May 24.

The leaders highlighted the “challenges to the rules-based maritime order that have emerged in the East and South China Seas,” a clear signal to the Chinese Communist Party, which has been at the center of numerous disputes in both waters.

“We strongly oppose any coercive, provocative, or unilateral actions that seek to change the status quo and increase tensions in the region,” the four-country leaders said in a statement on Tuesday.

The Quad announced a new maritime monitoring initiative that will track arms trafficking, illegal fishing, and CCP’s maritime militias, the fishing vessels used to help enforce Beijing’s territorial claims.

At Tuesday’s summit, the Quad also unveiled initiatives to tackle climate change, strengthen critical supply chains, enhance cybersecurity and improve global health.

Biden said the United States “must be and will be a strong, stable and enduring partner in the Indo-Pacific region at the Quad summit.”
