Washington: US President Joe Biden will be meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi during the Quad summit in Japan in May, the White House has announced.
President Biden will be visiting South Korea and Japan from May 20-24 to boost ties and take forward the Biden-Harris Administration's “rock-solid commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific and to U.S. treaty alliances with the Republic of Korea and Japan”.
The trip will build on more than a year of intensive diplomacy with the Indo-Pacific, including the U.S.-ASEAN Special Summit on May 12-13 in Washington, D.C. In each country, President Biden will hold bilateral meetings with his counterparts: newly elected President Yoon Suk Yeol of the Republic of Korea and Prime Minister Kishida Fumio of Japan.
“In Tokyo, President Biden will also meet with the leaders of the Quad grouping of Australia, Japan, India, and the United States,” the White House said on Thursday. During his virtual bilateral meeting with Prime Minister Modi ahead of the India-US 2+2 meeting held in Washington earlier this month, President Biden had said the Quad leaders' summit was to be held in Japan.
