Australia’s new Prime Minister Anthony Albanese said he will meet one-on-one with US President Joe Biden, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“It allows us to send a message to the world that there is a change of government,” he told reporters after taking victory for his centre-left Labor party in Saturday’s national elections.
“There will be some policy changes, particularly with regard to climate change, and our engagement with the world on these issues,” said the 59-year-old leader, who has pledged to accelerate Australia’s action to reduce carbon emissions.
Albanian said he and key members of his team would be sworn in on Monday.
The next day, he pledged to attend the Tokyo summits in the loosely organized “Quad” grouping of Australia, India, Japan and the United States, united in concern over China’s growing military and economic influence.
