Govt considering to invite Quad leaders as Republic Day guests

| @indiablooms | 07 Sep 2023, 11:07 pm

New Delhi: India is considering inviting the leaders of the Quad grouping as guests on Republic Day.

A final decision will be taken only after ensuring the availability of the leaders — US President Joe Biden, Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, said the report.

The chief guest for Republic Day is decided based on business interests, strategic and diplomatic, and international geopolitics. The Quad Leaders's Summit will be held in India in 2023.

It symbolises the government’s geopolitical perspective and policy.

The report said that India is working on ascertaining the availability of the leaders as they will be present for the G20 Summit in New Delhi, adding that all three leaders have a busy schedule in 2024.

As US presidential elections will be held in 2024, while Australia also celebrates its National Day on January 26th, putting a question mark on the availability of the leaders of these two nations.

Japanese PM Kishida is expected to attend the budget session of Diet, the Japanese parliament, which will start on January 23.

Meanwhile, PM Modi and US President Biden will hold a bilateral meeting in New Delhi on Friday.
