NEW DELHI: A summit meeting of “Quad” leaders — India, US,

Japan

,

Australia

— may be held as soon as this month, though there was no official confirmation from the MEA when questioned.
The keenness of the new Joe Biden administration to take the

Quad

to the next level has already been established. Australian PM Scott Morrison was quoted by ‘Bloomberg’ as saying on Friday, “This will become a feature of Indo-Pacific engagement,” The Australian PM said. “It will be four leaders, four countries, working together constructively for the peace, prosperity and stability of the Indo-Pacific.” The summit is expected to be in virtual mode.
Last month the third meeting of Quad foreign ministers was held where the new US administration signalled the direction of the US’ China policy. US media reports said the White House has scheduled a Quad summit meeting which would come about after Biden has spoken individually to all other members of the grouping.
