Senior White House official says Quad leaders to hold in-person meeting this fall

NHK reported that Indo-Pac Coordinator Kurt Campbell at the National Security Council said in an online event on Tuesday that the U.S., Japan, Australia, and India are aiming to hold the first-ever in-person Quad summit in Washington this fall. The network said President Biden places emphasis on the Quad framework of nations that share common values such as democracy and the rule of law in an effort to counter China’s rising influence. Campbell reportedly expressed the view that the Quad leaders are expected to discuss COVID-19 vaccine supplies and how to strengthen cooperation in infrastructure development. The network added that the Quad summit was held online for the first time in March, conjecturing that the Biden administration is hoping to hold an in-person summit as soon as possible to further strengthen the four-nation framework.
