Washington:

US President Joe Biden plans an in-person summit with leaders of Australia, India and Japan this year, a joint statement said, as they urged a “free, open” region amid concerns about China.

“We commit to promoting a free, open rules-based order, rooted in international law to advance security and prosperity and counter threats both in the Indo-Pacific and beyond,” said a joint statement released by the White House after a virtual summit.

“At the leader level, we will hold an in-person summit by the end of 2021,” it said.
