The Quad is a key instance of the United States and its closest companions, together with India, pulling collectively for the great of a free and open Indo-Pacific area, the Biden Administration stated on Tuesday.
The Quad, or the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue, is an off-the-cuff grouping of 4 nations — Australia, India, Japan and the United States.
“What I would say generally is that the Quad is a key example of the United States and our closest partners, including, in this case, India, pulling together for the good of a free and open Indo-Pacific region,” State Department Spokesperson Ned Price advised reporters at his every day information convention.
“We view the Quad as having essential momentum and important potential, and that’s why we’re going to build on it by deepening cooperation on areas of traditional focus – and that includes maritime security – while also working closely with Quad partners to confront some of the defining issues of our time,” he stated.
Price was responding to a query on information studies that the Biden Administration is engaged on a Quad summit. “We don’t have anything to announce at this time,” he stated.
