WASHINGTON -- "Today's summit meeting shows that the Quad has come of age," Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi told fellow leaders from the four countries that make up the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue -- the U.S., Japan, India and Australia -- as he made his opening remarks at Friday's virtual Quad Summit from New Delhi.

Moments later, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison weighed in from Canberra with his own description, saying the Quad represented "a new dawn in the Indo-Pacific."
