Tokyo/ New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said that Quad is pursuing a constructive agenda for the Indo-Pacific region and it has made an important place on the world stage in a short span of time.

During his opening remarks in Quad Readers' Summit, the Prime Minister said that Quad's scope has become extensive and its form has become effective.

"It's a great pleasure for me to be among my friends in Tokyo today. In such a short time, Quad has made an important place on the world stage. Today its scope has become wider and its form has become effective," the PM said.

Our mutual trust, our determination, is giving new energy and enthusiasm to the democratic forces, he added.

"Our mutual cooperation at Quad is giving a boost to a free, open and inclusive Indo-Pacific region which is the common objective of all of us," the PM said.

Modi said that despite the adverse circumstances of COVID-19, the Quad countries have increased coordination in many areas such as vaccine delivery, climate action, supply chain resilience, disaster response and economic cooperation.

"This is ensuring peace, prosperity and stability in the Indo-Pacific region. Quad is pursuing a constructive agenda for the Indo-Pacific region. This will further strengthen the image of the Quad as a 'force for good'," he said.

The third Quad Leaders' Summit got underway in Japan's capital Tokyo with top leaders of India, US, Japan and Australia joining hands to reaffirm their commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific.

The United State's President Joe Biden welcomed Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Summit saying "it's wonderful to see you again in person."

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, United States President Joe Biden, newly elected Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and Japan Prime Minister Kishida Fumio will exchange views about developments in the Indo-Pacific region and contemporary global issues of mutual interest.

This Summit is the fourth interaction of Quad Leaders since their first virtual meeting in March 2021, in-person Summit in Washington DC in September 2021 and virtual meeting in March 2022.
