The Quad And China: New Geopolitical Contest?
NEW DELHI: The first summit of the heads of government of the Quad—India, U.S., Japan and Australia—is expected as early as this week. It comes at a time the Biden administration has marked China as its biggest challenge. The other three countries in the Quad too have been at the receiving end of Chinese aggression but the quartet has robust trade ties with China. In this video chat, Nitin A. Gokhale, StratNews Global Editor-in-Chief, Jeff Smith, Research Fellow, South Asia, The Heritage Foundation and Rahul Roy-Chaudhury, Senior Fellow, South Asia, International Institute for Strategic Studies, discuss the various facets of the Quad and what its ultimate objective is.
