Back in March, the official stated that everyone witnessed President Biden had made Quad a priority through the first Quad leaders-level engagement. “President Biden has made the Quad a priority, as we all saw through the first Quad leaders-level engagement in March, which was virtual, and now this summit, which will be in person,” the senior official said.
Sources claimed that the engagement among the Quad nations including, the US, India, Australia, and Japan would be through new multilateral configurations designed to focus on challenges of the 21st Century. The members will emphasize the significance and promote a free and open Indo-Pacific region.
