India will host Quad next year, PM Modi says – we will be happy



Hiroshima. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Saturday that India is ready to host the next Quad (Quadrilateral Security Dialogue) meeting in 2024. In the opening remarks of the Quad meeting held on the sidelines of the Group of Seven (G-7 Summit) in the Japanese city of Hiroshima, Prime Minister Modi said, “We will be happy to host the Quad Summit in India in 2024.”

Prime Minister Modi said this while addressing the leaders of Quad members from America, Australia and Japan. The main objective of this group is to work for a free, open, prosperous and inclusive Indo-Pacific region. The meeting was attended by US President Joe Biden, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese.

“Quad is an important platform for securing peace and prosperity in the Indo-Pacific”
During it, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the Indo-Pacific region is the “engine” of global trade, innovation and development and that its success and security are important for the whole world. Along with this, he said, “The Quad has become an important platform for securing peace, stability and prosperity in the Indo-Pacific region.”

The Quad countries issued a joint statement against terrorism
At the same time, the leaders involved in the Quad Summit issued a joint statement saying, “We unequivocally condemn terrorism and violent extremism in all their forms and manifestations, including cross-border terrorism. We are committed to international cooperation and will work with our regional partners in a comprehensive and sustained manner to strengthen our ability to prevent, detect and respond to threats posed by terrorism and violent extremism in accordance with international law.

In this regard, the member countries of the Quad also declared: “We are committed to working together to promote the accountability of the perpetrators of such terrorist attacks. We condemn terrorist attacks, including the 26/11 and Pathankot attacks in Mumbai, and reiterate our commitment to pursue designations by the United Nations Security Council 1267 Sanctions Committee, as appropriate.

Significantly, the quad-summit is being held on the sidelines of the G-7 summit meeting in Hiroshima. The first quad summit was to be held in Australia on May 24. However, the meeting of leaders of the proposed quadruple countries in Sydney was canceled due to the postponement of US President Joe Biden’s visit to Australia to focus on the severe economic crisis in the country.
