Quad Group wants to strengthen Pacific island nations
The United States, Japan, India and Australia want to expand their cooperation with Pacific island states. At a summit on Tuesday, the so-called Quad Group decided to strengthen cooperation on economic issues, maritime security and adaptation to climate change. Specifically, for example, a satellite-based initiative was passed to crack down on illegal fishing and Chinese maritime militias, according to the Financial Times. The idea is to improve the capabilities of riparian countries, so they "know what is happening in countries' territorial waters and in their exclusive economic zones," a US official was quoted as saying.
