US President Biden will host the first face-to-face summit of leaders of the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue (Quad) at the White House on Friday (24th). Australian Prime Minister Morrison, Indian Prime Minister Modi and Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga will attend the meeting.

According to the White House statement, the leaders of the four countries will focus on advancing cooperation in areas such as the new crown virus, climate change, emerging technologies, and network security, and promote “pragmatic cooperation” in the field of freedom and openness in the Indo-Pacific. However, analysis believes that the Taiwan issue will definitely be an important agenda for this Quad summit.

“How to best prevent Taiwan from being annexed by China is definitely an important part of the discussion,” said June Teufel Dreyer, a political science professor at the University of Miami, in an interview with BBC Chinese.

The “four-party security dialogue” is a key mechanism for the Biden administration to implement its Indo-Pacific strategy. Although the mechanism was restarted when Trump was in power, Biden’s clear promise in the early days of taking office gave him new impetus for development. This Quad Leaders Summit is the latest move by the United States to counter China’s influence after the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia reached the AUKUS security agreement.
