Back

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Joe Biden warmly embrace each other during their meeting in Hiroshima, Japan on Saturday.

The G7 sessions will provide a platform for discussions on various crucial subjects, including peace, stability, and prosperity of a sustainable planet, food, fertilizer, energy security, health, gender equality, climate change and environment, resilient infrastructure, and development cooperation.

The meeting will bring together Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, Japanese PM Kishida Fumio, and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Hiroshima.

In a statement on Friday, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said, “After President Joe Biden had to postpone his trip to Australia, the Quad leaders agreed that they would hold their summit in Hiroshima to ensure that the four leaders could come together to mark the Quad’s progress over the past year."

Hence, in addition to the G7, Biden will take part in the meeting with the prime ministers of the four countries.

The statement mentioned that in addition to discussing strategic assessments, the leaders will embrace innovative avenues for Quad collaboration, focusing on areas such as secure digital technology, submarine cables, infrastructure development, and maritime domain awareness. “President Biden thanks Prime Minister Albanese, as well as the Prime Ministers of Japan and India, for their flexibility, and he looks forward to rescheduling his trip."

In November 2017, India, Japan, the US and Australia gave shape to the long-pending proposal of setting up the "Quad" to develop a new strategy to keep the critical sea routes in the Indo-Pacific free of any influence amid China's aggressive behaviour in the region.
