Later today, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Minister for Women, Senator the Hon Marise Payne will join her counterparts, the US Secretary of State, the Foreign Minister of Japan and the External Affairs Minister of India, for the third Quad Foreign Ministers’ Meeting.
This dialogue will allow our nations to advance our shared interest in a secure and prosperous region. The Quad’s positive agenda will enable us to progress cooperation among four Indo-Pacific democracies across a range of areas, including to support the region recover from the economic and health impacts of COVID-19.
The Quad is a key pillar of Australia’s international agenda and complements our other bilateral, regional and multilateral engagement, including with ASEAN. Quad partners are strong supporters of ASEAN centrality within a region in which all countries are sovereign, independent and resilient.
