Quad Leaders Commit to Cooperation

 Australia, India, Japan and U.S. have reaffirmed partnership.

This past week, President Biden, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga, and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison met over a video call to discuss the situation with North Korea, growing Chinese influence and aggression, and the Myanmar crisis. Collaboration on funding the production of vaccines in India was also part of the conference.

The leaders stated in a joint release that the Quad nations “reaffirm our commitment to quadrilateral cooperation between Australia, India, Japan, and the United States. We bring diverse perspectives and are united in a shared vision for the free and open Indo-Pacific. We strive for a region that is free, open, inclusive, healthy, anchored by democratic values, and unconstrained by coercion. … We are committed to leveraging our partnership to help the world’s most dynamic region respond to historic crisis, so that it may be the free, open, accessible, diverse, and thriving Indo-Pacific we all seek.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the Quad nation leaders as they pursue peaceful cooperation in the Indo-Pacific.
  • For wisdom for the four nations as they work to protect against common adversaries.
  • That President Biden would seek God’s wisdom in foreign policy.
