‘Don’t put your feet in the affairs of others’, China’s threat to Japan before the Quad conference, the clash of ideas will shape the new system!

Tokyo : Conflict of ideas is increasing all over the world, due to which new partnerships are being seen between different countries. With the formation of these partnerships, the possibility of a new global order taking shape is increasing. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi seems to be in a similar confrontational mood ahead of the ‘Quad Summit 2022’ this week. He has asked Japan, the host of the conference, not to get involved in the affairs of others.

Through this remark of Wang Yi, China can be gauged about the threats posed by the alliances and security partnerships between the countries it wants to influence. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has not only strengthened US-European Union security cooperation. Rather, Japan, South Korea and Australia have also extended their hand for cooperation.

One such alliance is ‘Quad’, about which China is worried. The ‘Quad’ includes the US, Japan, India and Australia. The main objective of this alliance is said to be the protection of its interests in the Indo-Pacific region. However, China believes that the purpose of this alliance is to surround it. One such alliance is ‘Ocus’. The alliance includes Australia, Britain and the United States. This is also the view of China regarding this alliance. ‘Quad’ and ‘Ocus’ are somehow related to each other.

The winner of this ongoing China-US competition between the US and its partners will define the rules of the digital economy – economies and the role of government in our lives. In 2017 and 2016, China adopted new national intelligence and cyber security laws, respectively. According to the laws, citizens have a duty to cooperate with state intelligence and security agencies.

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) believes that the Internet, media and business should serve the interests of the CCP. If China wins this standards competition, the consequences for Indo-Pacific stakeholders will be real. The ‘aucus’ is trying to ensure that China does not gain a standard setting status at the regional and global level.

The Quadrilateral Security Dialogue (Quad) further strengthens the ‘OCUS’ by supporting its technology working groups, commitment to rules-based trade, supply chains and infrastructure and connectivity. Apart from ‘Quad’ and ‘Ocus’, several small partnerships have been formed in the Indo-Pacific region, which are aimed at reducing the influence of China in the region.

There remains a clear possibility of war in the Indo-Pacific. The main cause of concern is the forcible annexation of Taiwan by China or the unilateral declaration of Taiwan’s independence. Incident conflicts in the South China Sea and the operation and use of the law of ‘grey zones’ in both the East and South China Seas also pose a significant risk to the region.

To address this risk, Japan, Australia, South Korea, Taiwan and Southeast Asian countries continue to engage themselves in multilateral and multinational partnerships with and without the United States. These partnerships not only show commitment to security but also have good provisions in terms of trade, technology, infrastructure and connectivity. They aim to create a transparent, rules-based sector that reflects a free and open society that recognizes governance, technology and the proper role of government.
