WASHINGTON -- U.S. President Joe Biden told Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday that increasing oil purchases from Russia is not in New Delhi's interest.

During the online meeting, Biden also suggested that members of the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue would hold a summit in Japan "on around the 24th of May." If the in-person Quad summit takes place, it would be Biden's first trip to Japan since taking office in 2021. The Indo-Pacific grouping consists of the U.S., India, Japan and Australia.
