President Biden mentions trip to Japan in late May 

NHK reported on a teleconference held on Monday between President Biden and Indian Prime Minister Modi, airing video showing the President saying at the onset of the meeting: “I am looking forward to seeing you in Japan about the 24th of May.” The network noted that if Biden’s visit to Japan is realized, it will be his first trip to Asia as president. The network also said that while the Japanese government is making arrangements to hold a Quad summit and have the President visit Japan in late May, the leaders’ meeting and the President’s visit may have to be rescheduled depending on the outcome of the general election in Australia on May 21. The broadcaster added that White House Press Secretary Psaki said during a daily press briefing on the same day: “The President is looking forward to going to Asia at some point, but I don’t have any more details at this point in time.”
