Biden will also go to South Korea

Biden will attend the Quad Nations leaders' summit on May 24. This information was given by Japanese Cabinet Secretary Hirokazu Matsuno. The secretary, however, did not spell out the agenda of the summit. At the same time, the White House announced on Wednesday that US President Joe Biden will visit South Korea and Japan on May 20-24 to promote cooperation between the US and the two countries. In Tokyo, Biden will also meet with quad leaders from Australia, Japan, India and the United States.

In September last year, Biden hosted Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi and then-Japanese PM Yoshihide Suga for the Quad's first in-person leaders' summit at the White House.

The role of QUAD has become more important amid the turbulent geostrategic situation of a war like the one going on between Russia-Ukraine and the aggressive stance of China in South China sea.
