BEIJING/WASHINGTON/NEW YORK -- The Biden administration looks set to put the diplomatic focus back on the Indo-Pacific and especially China, after a grueling month that was absorbed almost entirely by Afghanistan.

Key in this effort will be next week's first in-person summit of the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue taking place in Washington, with outgoing Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison attending along with President Joe Biden.
