White House Hopes For Quad Progress In India’s Host Year

WASHINGTON, DC (ANI) – The White House on February 28 emphasized the significant strides made by the Quad Alliance over the past three years and underscored the importance of continuing this momentum into 2024, particularly under India’s host year.

White House press secretary Karine Jean Pierre addressed the upcoming anniversary of the Quad, expressing President Biden’s pride in the progress and the shared vision of a free, open, and prosperous Indo-Pacific.

“So, I would say this, the president is incredibly proud of the progress the Quad has made over the past three years. To your point, the anniversary is coming up, and we are hoping to continue that momentum in 2024 under India’s host year, as you just stated. And we’re talking about not just the United States but, obviously, India, Japan, and Australia, and we all have a shared vision here, of a free, open, and prosperous Indo-Pacific,” Pierre said.

The Quad, consisting of the United States, India, Japan, and Australia, aims to deliver concrete benefits across critical sectors for the Indo-Pacific region.

“The Quad is helping all of our nations deliver concrete benefits to the Indo-Pacific across several critical, important sectors. So, we look forward to continuing that progress for the Quad in 2024, not just in 2024, but also beyond,” she added.

Switching focus to the I2U2 initiative, Pierre reiterated its critical importance and President Biden’s deep commitment to advancing innovative, inclusive, and science-based solutions. The initiative aims to address challenges related to food and energy security, space operations, water conservation, waste management, and other ventures.

The I2U2 Group is a grouping of India, Israel, the United Arab Emirates, and the United States.

“I2U2 remains critically important, and the president is deeply committed to making sure that we continue with I2U2, obviously with our partnership among our four countries and beyond through innovative, inclusive, and science-based solutions to advance and not to enhance food and energy security, space operation and other ventures, advancing projects on water conservation, waste management in other areas,” she also said.–
