L to R: Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, US President Joe Biden, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi at The Quad summit, Tokyo, Japan, May 24, 2022

I joined Turkey’s TRT World on Tuesday to analyze the significance of a summit among “The Quad” — Japan, Australia, India, and the US — in Tokyo.

I begin with US President Joe Biden’s statement that the US will defend Taiwan if China tries to overrun the island.

Then I address equally important developments: The Quad’s commitments to a 12-nation economic bloc, cooperation on technology and infrastructure, and maritime security, including in the East and South China Seas.

I also appeared on India’s CNN 18 to talk about a productive summit, as the US and India reconciled their different approaches to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
