(FiveNation.com)- President Joe Biden is reportedly planning a number of stops during a trip to Asia in the spring and is expected to take part in a summit with other leaders from the “Quad” alliance.
Speaking to Reuters, a senior official from the Biden administration said that the president will be meeting the leaders of Japan, India, and Australia at a summit in Tokyo. The official said that the president’s attendance is part of the federal government’s “commitment to regularize our engagement through the Quad.”
The statement also revealed that Biden is planning to “make several other stops on that trip.”
Well, it will be a nice change of scenery for the president, who has spent roughly one-quarter of his time since entering the White House at his family home in Delaware.
The trip will be Biden’s first trip to Asia since becoming the president, though he has been on the continent many times before…both in the capacity as vice president, and allegedly in the capacity as a businessman.
The exact details of the summit have not yet been released, but among the topics on the table for discussion will unquestionably be China and North Korea.
