Meeting on the margins of the Quad Summit in Tokyo, the two leaders discussed a range of bilateral issues as well as global developments. They exchanged views on regional issues of mutual interest including South Asia and the Indo-Pacific region, reaffirming their shared vision for a free, open and inclusive Indo-Pacific region.

If the spirit of cooperation that was seen during the negotiations for reunification of Germany had prevailed, successive US administrations would not have been so keen on Nato's enlargement immediately after the disintegration of USSR.
