The Quadrilateral Security Dialogue, or Quad, gained momentum during this same crisis as the Covid-19 outbreak brought the world to a halt. Although it is a top priority for the Quad, opposing China now seems to be the main agenda due to the changing security landscape. That is to say, even if the Quad has not explicitly acknowledged this, China is unquestionably the major issue. The entire logic for the creation of the Quad is quantified by Beijingâ€™s exclusion from the four-member grouping. In this situation, the Quad can be viewed as a novel type of security partnership for the twenty-first century. The growing polarisation brought on by the US-China conflict, in which each country calls for others to â€œjoinâ€ its side, adds to the groupingâ€™s complexity. The Quad is being compelled by the expanding contingencies to play a bigger part in battling both conventional and unconventional security challenges. Following are the crucial questions: Is there a â€œfire-fightingâ€ mode for the Quad? If so, does China become concerned? What part does India play in the Indo-Pacific region?
