The White House says President Biden will meet Saturday with leaders of the Quad alliance on the sidelines of the Group of Seven nations summit in Japan, making up for Mr. Biden scrapping plans to attend a Quad meeting next week in Australia.
Mr. Biden will manage to join the third-ever Quad Leaders’ session with Prime Minister Anthony Albanese of Australia, Prime Minister Fumio Kishida of Japan and Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India, said White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.
