SEOUL -- When South Korean President Moon Jae-in meets U.S. President Joe Biden in the White House on Friday, the two are likely to discuss ways for Seoul to cooperate with the Quad.

The U.S. has sought South Korea's further cooperation in its policies addressing China. But Seoul aims to keep ties with the Quad -- a loose alliance among the U.S., Japan, India and Australia -- at a level that avoids drawing a forceful response from Beijing.
