NEW YORK -- The rise to prominence of the quadrilateral security dialogue, or Quad, between the U.S., Japan, India and Australia is a reflection of the shift from a unipolar world to a multipolar one and will be central in the landscape ahead, Indian External Affairs Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar said Friday.

"I think the future of the Quad and any other arrangements, you know, which countries may have of a similar nature actually reflects the movement of the world to multipolarity," he said in an online session with the New York-based Asia Society.
