I've heard that nothing in the following net ionic equation reacts:

$$ \ce{Li+ + NO3- + Na+ + Cl- -> \text{"nothing"}} $$

Is this true? Could someone explain why there would be no reaction?

Assuming all these ions are in an aqueous solution, according to solubility rules nitrates are soluble, chlorides (with the exception of AgCl, PbCl₂, and Hg₂Cl₂) are soluble, and salts containing group 1 elements are soluble so they all remain as individual ions as nothing can come together to form an insoluble compound and precipitate out of the solution.
