TOKYO -- Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida looks to visit India as early as March for a meeting with counterpart Narendra Modi to discuss bolstering ties among countries in the Indo-Pacific security grouping known as the Quad and responding to the crisis involving Russia and Ukraine.

The trip would come before a meeting of leaders from the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue -- which also consists of the U.S. and Australia -- to be hosted by Japan. Washington is eyeing a May time frame for that summit.
