Tokyo: The Quad leaders are gearing up to attend a teleconference as early as mid-March, media reports said.

The leaders of Japan, the United States, Australia and India plan to hold a teleconference as early as mid-March to discuss ways to counter China's growing influence, Japanese government sources told Kyodo News.

It would be the first summit involving members of the so-called Quad, a framework that was initially formed in response to the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami but now mainly focuses on regional security, the news agency reported.

Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga, U.S. President Joe Biden, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi are also expected to discuss the fair distribution of COVID-19 vaccines and efforts to tackle climate change, the sources told the news agency.
