    Meanwhile, the third in-person Quad Summit held Saturday in Hiroshima, Japan, laid out an expansive agenda in a strong signal to China but again not explicitly naming the country in the leaders joint statement. All four leaders of the member countries vowed to take it to the next level from setting up an undersea cable, to critical supply chains and to countering terrorism.

    The Quad Summit, which was earlier scheduled to take place in Australia, was held on the margins of the G7 meeting. Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced at the meeting that India will host the next in-person Quad Summit in 2024. The Summit venue changed to Japan due to US President Joe Biden’s change of itinerary as he had to be back home to attend debt crisis talks.

    The Quad countries are the US, India, Japan and Australia.
