NEW DELHI: The Quad summit in Japan on Tuesday will provide an opportunity to the leaders to review the progress of their common initiatives and exchange views on the developments in the Indo-Pacific region and global issues of mutual interest, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in a statement before his departure to Tokyo.
PM Modi’s most significant engagement on Monday will be his participation in the launch of US President Joe Biden’s ambitious Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF) initiative that seeks the integration of Indo-Pacific economies and secure and resilient supply chains. India has been discussing the IPEF with the US and, in a sign that the government was not averse to joining it, foreign secretary Vinay Kwatra had said on Sunday that economic cooperation in the region is important for India and that Modi will focus on, among other things, efforts aimed at harnessing economic opportunities and capacity building.
To rope in more countries in the IPEF, the US has watered down the launch text by saying that the participants will start consultations, and not “launch negotiations” right away, for the IPEF, said a Financial Times report from Washington. The US has also clarified that the IPEF is not a security arrangement.
Apart from China’s military aggression, the Ukraine issue is again likely to dominate the agenda of meetings in Tokyo. On the bilateral with the US, while Modi said he will continue with Biden their dialogue on regional developments and contemporary global issues, the US NSA Jake Sullivan, who is accompanying Biden, said en route to Japan that talks with India on the Ukraine issue will be constructive and straightforward. Food security will also be an important subject of discussion in the Quad meeting.
Official sources said the US is fully aware of India’s position on Ukraine and its oil imports from Russia.
