In lieu of the ongoing debt ceiling negotiations in the US and the subsequent withdrawal from the scheduled Quad Summit in Australia, the Summit has now been postponed to be held in Hiroshima on the lines of the G7 meet — scheduled to happen there — where PM Modi is an invitee.
Notably, it is the first time after the Pokhran Nuclear tests that an Indian PM will be visiting Hiroshima, in the backdrop of the fact that India has not signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
PM Modi will attend the G7 summit and the Quad meet in Hiroshima, and then depart to attend the Indo-Pacific Forum meeting in Port Moresby in Papua New Guinea and wind up his travel with a bilateral summit in Australia.
Reportedly, Australian PM Albanese had called off the Quad meet after the withdrawal of US, mentioning its postponement, which has now been decided to be held on the by-lines of the G7 meet considering all leaders would be present there.
PM Modi will reach Hiroshima on 19 May.
