In order to curb China's illegal fishing in the Indo-Pacific, the Quad is set to unveil a satellite surveillance system, according to reports.

India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi, US President Joe Biden, Japan PM Fumio Kishida, and newly-elected Australian PM Anthony Albanese are meeting in Tokyo for a Quad summit on May 24.
