India at the QUAD was being squeezed more than a little by the USA wanting the QUAD to condemn Russia over Ukraine. Russia is a long-standing friend of India (since 1947 independence).
And behind the scenes there are questions about the commitment of the USA to the region and specifically to South East Asia and the Indian Ocean.
The four QUAD countries (India, Australia, Japan and USA) are closer than ever before and doing positive things in supply chains, emergency relief and vaccines for poor countries.
But, are the cracks beginning to show?
