recent situation in China, along with North Korea, is equally uncomfortable.

Following the launch of the Indo-Pacific Economic Council led by the United States, yesterday (24th), the leaders of the United States, Japan, Australia and India gathered in Japan to discuss ways to contain China, which is expanding its power in India and the Pacific.

China is also outraged.

U.S. President Biden, Japanese Prime Minister Kishida, Australian Prime Minister Albanage, and Indian Prime Minister Modi gathered for the Quadruple Summit, a security consultative body of four countries.

The quad face-to-face summit is the second after being held in the United States in September last year.

[President Biden/USA: We have a lot of work to do to keep the region peaceful and stable.]

After the meeting, the leaders of the four countries expressed their concerns about the situation in Ukraine and expressed their concern for the complete denuclearization of North Korea. They said they agreed to cooperate.

The key agenda was a plan to contain China.

In order to de-Chinese communication equipment, we decided to promote cooperation in the supply chain of advanced technologies such as 5G mobile communication, and also cooperate in tracking and monitoring illegal fishing in China using satellite-based systems.

In time, the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced plans for Foreign Minister Wang Yi to visit eight island countries in the South Pacific.

Regarding the Taiwan issue, he made a thorny remark.

[Wang Won-bin / Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China: I suggest that the United States listen to an old song circulated in China.

When friends come, there is a good drink.

If Seungnyang comes, he will be hit with a shotgun.]

Last month, China signed a security agreement with the Solomon Islands in the South Pacific, including dispatching Chinese ships. .
