US and Quad partners want more influence in Indo-Pacific
After announcing the controversial Aukus alliance with Australia and the UK, US President Joe Biden is now pushing ahead with another security alliance for the Indo-Pacific without EU participation. At the White House on Friday, Biden met in person for the first time with the heads of government of the so-called Quad countries. Accordingly, the USA, India, Japan and Australia want to cooperate even more closely and expand their influence in the Indo-Pacific region. The region from the Indian to the Pacific Ocean forms the basis for "common security and common prosperity", Biden said in a joint statement with Yoshihide Suga (Japan), Narendra Modi (India) and Scott Morrison (Australia) at the White House.
