Japan seeks first in-person Quad summit in June on G-7 sidelines

Suga plans trip to India after Washington visit to shore up support

Japan will propose an in-person summit with fellow Quad members the U.S., India and Australia.

TOKYO -- Japan will call for the first in-person meeting of Quad leaders to be held on the sidelines of the Group of Seven summit in the U.K. in June, as the group pursues greater cooperation to counter China's growing clout in the Indo-Pacific, Nikkei has learned.

The Quad, short for the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue, consists of the U.S., Japan, India and Australia. While the grouping dates back more than 15 years, the leaders held a virtual summit for the first time last month and have yet to formally meet in person.
