The Quad summit scheduled in Sydney on 24 May was
cancelled due to the last minute announcement that US President

Australia siding with either the US or China, and want the
Australian government to be neutral. A strong majority of
young people said they want Australia to be neutral in the event of
war breaking out between the 2 rival super powers.
