Modi left Washington earlier in the day after attending a meeting with President Joe Biden and the Quad Summit.
Heads of four nations-India, the United States, Australia and Japan-met for the first in-person summit of Quad grouping on Friday in Washington DC, where they discussed the key challenges faced by the world presently, including the COVID-19 pandemic.
Opening the address, Prime Minister Narendra Modi thanked US President Joe Biden for hosting the Quad meeting.
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga are also present at the meeting.
"Our four nations met for the first time after the 2004 Tsunami to help the Indo-Pacific region. Today, when the world is fighting against COVID-19 pandemic, we have come here once again as Quad for the welfare of humanity," PM Modi said.
The Indian Prime Minister said he was "confident that our participation in Quad will establish peace and prosperity in the world."
"Our Quad vaccine initiative will greatly help the Indo-Pacific countries," PM Modi added.
