i think everything jenny, some are big. i'm listening. so much different culture between here and there. still jelly g for everything. ah, some of this i think it was worth it for me to come to germany. shove my got my license to work as a swimming instructor. here they are. now i teach children and adults with what's your story? take part, share it on info, migrants dot net. ah, this is deed of the news asia coming up to dave, how the ukraine war has prompted the us to short our partnerships in the indoor pacific. u. s. president joe biden has met leaders of india, australia, and japan, to reiterate that a ukraine style envision can't be allowed to happen in the region. it's
a wink to china's actions here in recent years. and joe biden has also reached out to old allies, south korea, and japan to strengthen supply chains and security. we look at what all this means for the people in the region. ah, i british energy, welcome to the w news asia. glad you could join us for leading democracies in the indoor pacific. ria farmed their commitment to a free and open at region to day. that essentially means these nations want to reinforce that international rules in the region are followed and make sure are you korean style in vision does not occur in their backyard. the meeting in tokyo was held between the leaders of the united states, japan, australia, and india. the so called ward grouping of nations. they agreed amongst other things
to prep down on illegal shipping and fishing activities in the region. launch a fellowship for study in the united states and to also jointly tackle climate change. but the ukraine war cast a long shadow on the meeting, and this is what some of the leaders have to say. lucy, on you to good. i know she rushes invasion of ukraine, clearly challenges the principles written in the charter of the united nations. we cannot let the same thing happened in the indo pacific region could or still not even as long as russia continues the war. the united states will work with our partners to help be to global response because of can affect all parts of the world . at the same time, united states must and will be strong, steady, and enduring partner in the, in the pacific. so the quad has a lot of work out of us. and the fact of the matter is we've a lot of work to do,
keeping this region peaceful, unstable. from on this, i'm joined now. i got a mom or one from the german marshall fund of the united states. she's an expert on the quad and strategic issues in the, in the pacific as well on what is the impact of the ukraine war being on the core grouping of nations. so ukraine has had an impact on the quad as well as on the brought a new pacific. i'm. i'm sure you remember that as soon as the war broke out, it was a expeditionary meeting. was the court leaders, leaders got together on short notice to discuss the cream. but i think a bigger question right now, facing countries in the end of the city, is not only the humanitarian aspect of their water and forwarding and tragedy. but also being backed on the pacific with crisis sanctions, independent, russia, community and country are very much,
a crisis is less, i think our cheese across b. now understand this is not just the more happening for me in europe, and the joint statement coming from the core needed to be indicated. i'd like to talk about the dependence on russia and particularly about in this position. and i know that we have discussed this in the past, but 1st i'd just like to play to sound bites from the bilateral meeting between president biden and prime minister mo, the, for the benefit of 5 years. we also discussed the ongoing effects of russia. brutal, non justified invasion of ukraine. the effect that has on the tar global world order and the u. s. u. continue consulting close and how to mitigate these negative effects when it might be. i'm confident that with the conclusion of the u
. s. investment incentive agreement, we will see concrete progress and investment between our 2 countries call being buggy. this is emily. i'm his mom prime minister movie is talking trade while president biden appears to be referencing index position on or ukraine are both countries on the same page. as we've discussed this whole, i think this is an ongoing conversation between the united states in india, but i think they're on the same page. i wouldn't say they're exactly, they have similar positions, but many in the list government understand the positioning is taking understand very well. the constraints under it understand very well the constraint is under. and similarly, india also has been able to communicate the position to go to the united states. i would like to take your attention back again to join statement that has come out of these meetings, which does not mention russia by name,
but does mention the crisis which is very much in position. so we can assume that the $41.00 partner countries understand the stance in each of her countries in this court grouping. let's just say my, we have a less than ideal relationship with china. yet the leaders are pains to point out that this is not an antique china alliance. i mean, china certainly views it as that i, we really do believe that this is not an antique china alliance. the court is tried very hard over the last few years to prove just that it is not just an antique china alliance. in fact, it is much more the court has tried to give a more positive vision for the region. it has tried to portray it says, of course, who good in the region. and if you look at the various quadrants, in fact, a very intricate structure of the one that has emerged over the last 2 years. it deals with a lot of issues like climate change,
critical and emerging technology is now even a call on people to people, ties maritime security. but more often, the aspect of information sharing, responding to disasters and with the scope of the court really has gone beyond the china question. and it's walking to talk to look at all the work that has gone on into these working groups and everything that has come out of it. it is pretty, pretty clear now that even though china is certainly a motivating factor, the board is not just about china. are people in the region are going to feel the benefits of the court? i think so, i think this is the hope now in the 1st year, as i mentioned, a tried to create this intricate structure to say, well, the one is the source for good. in the 2nd year, the focus has been on delivery and really trying to say, we're not just to talk shop, you have results. and the very detailed fact sheet that came out of the 4 countries today, as well as
a joint statement from the leaders goes into minute detail of all the things that they are trying to portray and do. and region, particularly the vaccine initiative is one quantity. now under the quantum relo, maxine have already been provided to the region. the deliveries have started with cambodia and now in other southeast asian countries. i think that is one example understanding how the pandemic has the more now the one wants to talk about students as well. as p d at pediatric vaccines, which united states aims to provide to the countries in the region with the greatest. so there are countless other examples that have come out in this very deep can statement from the or get us. which really try to show to the region that we bring alternatives to china and we can give you tangible benefits that you can out of the scene. arduous hubert quarter developing into the future. i think one
interesting thing that has happened with the creation of these working groups is now the board has become, you know, lies in several in the folk. i'm teasing how the bureaucracies working on this is the gun in changed the minutes cheese and the bureaucratic such as says, not just, you know, left in one hand here. the other. and the most just most interesting example has been australia, continuous had elections and a new elected prime minister and foreign ministers. ma, well, grady it 24 hours after that is us m m took you for the ard meeting. so that really shows that the support for the court has his own in the various 4 countries beyond just the national security heritage and the political parties then participated in the new one. so i think the fisher one is that it is here to steal. the most important challenge for the one is number one, delivery and number 2, managing expectations in high expectations and now it has and i'm on relieve,
therefore, that i'm being thank you so much for joining us. all was a pleasure talking to thank you for having me. other chord leaders meeting came of the end of job biden's, 1st trip to asia as president. the aim was clear and unequivocal signal that us commitment to the region will remain strong despite an ongoing board in europe. the rivalry with china still defines us policy in the region, and barden made it a point to visit 2 of the u. s. his oldest security allies in the region, japan and south korea. joe biden landed in south korea, eager to reassert us influence in the asia pacific to counter china's growing political and economic strength in the region. his 1st port of call a tour of a samsung semiconductor factory with zachary is new president. you and sock you with russia's invasion of ukraine and supply chain bottlenecks. driving prices at
home, sky high, the u. s. president needed a win. so he kicked off his 1st presidential visit to asia with visits to staunch allies and sole and tokyo. sorry. so much so much in the future. the world is going to be written here in the endo pacific, over the next several decades. we're standing at an inflection point in history, where the decisions we make today, or a far reaching impacts on the world, relieved your children tomorrow. by den agreed to step up military drills with so and deploy more u. s. weapons if necessary to deter north korea. while offering to san kobe 19 vaccines to pyongyang, and potentially meet kim jong earn. he was standing beside japanese prime minister for me o key shita. when he dropped the bombshell statement of his trip, that he will be willing to use force to defend taiwan against chinese aggression. we agree with a one china policy. we shined onward and all the attendant agreements made from
there. but the idea that that can be taken by force taken by force is just not, is just not appropriate, dislocate the entire region, and be another action similar to what happened in, in, in ukraine. both japan and south korea along with india are central to the indo pacific economic framework. a new, loosely defined economic block to counter china. 20 biden's meeting with his fellow quad leader is from japan, india and australia is putting china on notice e j. b 40. and that's it for today's special on the interpreter effect, as more from the region on our website. did other dot com, forward slash isha will even now with images from joe biden strip to asia. his 1st as president, he began with a visit to south korea and japan, followed by eating of the quote. missions can see you here tomorrow,
