The fourth quadripartite summit is expected to focus on the various initiatives launched by the four-nation group, which includes the United States, India, Japan and Australia, and discuss developments in the Indo-Pacific region.

The summit is the fourth interaction of the Quartet leaders since their first virtual meeting in March 2021, the in-person summit in the United States in September 2021 and the virtual meeting in March 2022.

Prime Minister Modi, who left for Japan on Sunday for the meeting at the invitation of Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, will hold bilateral meetings with his Japanese counterpart and US President Joe Biden on the sidelines of the summit today.
