China raged on QUAD group, told itself to establish 'peace' in the world, said - Quad countries will not get any support

Reaction on China on QUAD: China on Friday criticized the grouping ahead of the Quad summit between the leaders of the US, India, Japan and Australia in Washington, saying that the formation of this 'specific closed group' is against the trend of the times and It will get 'no support'. This is the first face-to-face meeting of the leaders of the Quad countries. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his counterparts Scott Morrison of Australia and Yoshihide Suga of Japan have gathered in the US capital for the first-ever Quad Summit to be held at the White House at the invitation of US President Joe Biden.

When asked about China's reaction to the Quad summit, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told media persons that the grouping of four countries should not target any third country and its interests. He said, 'China always believes that no regional cooperation mechanism should target any third party or harm its interests (QUAD China Australia). The formation of a specific bandh group against any third country is against the trend of the present times and the aspiration of the countries of the region. It will not get any support.

Claims on SCS defended

Defending Chinese claims on the South China Sea (SCS), the spokesperson said, "China is a builder of world peace, a contributor to global development and a maintainer of world order." He said, 'China's development means development for peace and stability in the world and therefore everyone has to see China's contribution to peace, stability and development in Asia Pacific (Quad Force Against China). Relevant countries should do more such actions which are conducive to solidarity and cooperation with the four countries of the region.

Which issues will be discussed?

The leaders of the Quad countries will also talk to stop China's power in the Indo-Pacific region along with issues such as the corona virus and climate change. All countries advocate an open Indo-Pacific region, where China is continuously increasing its presence and military strength. Earlier this year, the leaders of the Quad countries had a virtual meeting. At the same time, the first face-to-face meeting is going to be held today i.e. on Friday. Apart from India, there are Australia, Japan and America in the quad countries.
