The Australian’s Foreign Editor Greg Sheridan says it has been a “very effective week or two of Australian diplomacy”.

On September 24, leaders of India, Japan, Australia, and the United States will all meet in person for the first-ever Quad leaders’ summit at the White House.

“This is a very good development for Australia, and this has been a very, very effective week or two of Australian diplomacy,” Mr Sheridan told Sky News Australia.

“We now face two big uncertainties, how far is China going to go in its bullying and how reliable are the Americans.

“So, the first thing, thickening our other Asian connections is critical; the second thing, getting the Americans to be as involved as possible.

“It’s a tremendous geopolitical signal of solidarity amongst the democracies and it’s the most useful thing diplomatically the Biden administration could do and the most useful thing we could do to get the Biden administration as securely involved in our region as possible.”
