Quad meeting (General)

Never heard of this before but Quad is high-level meeting of Foreign Affairs ministers from the US, India, Japan, and Australia, which is currently being held in Tokyo, specifically to address growing China influence in the region.

That's quite provocative. It also gives an insight into the likely coalition if worse comes to worst.

Australia is the minnow-state there - some people argue Australia should not be putting its head on the China chopping block by participating in such activities since it has become so dependent on China money. There has been/will be economic consequences, but the question is: 'Are human rights more important than short term economic gain?'

For many leaders the answer to that is 'No.' I understand that reasoning, but glad to see it is being reappraised.
