March 13, Washinton D.C.: Convened to reaffirm the commitment to quadrilateral cooperation between Australia, India, Japan, and the United States. Bring diverse perspectives and are united in a shared vision for the free and open Indo-Pacific. Strive for a region that is free, open, inclusive, healthy, anchored by democratic values, and unconstrained by coercion. 



Recall that the joint efforts toward this positive vision arose out of an international tragedy, the tsunami of 2004. The global devastation wrought by COVID-19, the threat of climate change, and security challenges facing the region summon us with renewed purpose. On this historic occasion of March 12, 2021, the first-ever leader-level summit of the Quad, pledge to strengthen our cooperation on the defining challenges of our time.

Commit to promoting a free, open rules-based order, rooted in international law to advance security and prosperity and counter threats to both in the Indo-Pacific and beyond. Support the rule of law, freedom of navigation and overflight, peaceful resolution of disputes, democratic values, and territorial integrity. Commit to working together and with a range of partners. Reaffirm the strong support for ASEAN’s unity and centrality as well as the ASEAN Outlook on the Indo-Pacific. Full of potential, the Quad looks forward to the future; it seeks to uphold peace and prosperity and strengthen democratic resilience, based on universal values.

Common goals require to reckon with the most urgent of global challenges. Pledge to respond to the economic and health impacts of COVID-19, combat climate change, and address shared challenges, including in cyberspace, critical technologies, counterterrorism, quality infrastructure investment, and humanitarian-assistance and disaster-relief as well as maritime domains.

Building on the progress the countries have achieved on health security will join forces to expand safe, affordable, and effective vaccine production and equitable access, to speed economic recovery and benefit global health. With a steadfast commitment to the health and safety of our own people, also recognize that none can be safe as long as the pandemic continues to spread. Therefore, will collaborate to strengthen equitable vaccine access for the Indo-Pacific, with close coordination with multilateral organizations including the World Health Organization and COVAX. Call for transparent and results-oriented reform at the World Health Organization. United in recognizing that climate change is a global priority and will work to strengthen the climate actions of all nations, including to keep a Paris-aligned temperature limit within reach. Look forward to a successful COP 26 in Glasgow. Will begin cooperation on the critical technologies of the future to ensure that innovation is consistent with a free, open, inclusive, and resilient Indo-Pacific. Will continue to prioritize the role of international law in the maritime domain, particularly as reflected in the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), and facilitate collaboration, including in maritime security, to meet challenges to the rules-based maritime order in the East and South China Seas. Reaffirm the commitment to the complete denuclearization of North Korea in accordance with United Nations Security Council resolutions, and also confirm the necessity of immediate resolution of the issue of Japanese abductees. As long-standing supporters of Myanmar and its people, emphasize the urgent need to restore democracy and the priority of strengthening democratic resilience.


To advance these goals and others, will redouble the commitment to Quad engagement. Will combine the nations’ medical, scientific, financing, manufacturing and delivery, and development capabilities and establish a vaccine expert working group to implement our path-breaking commitment to safe and effective vaccine distribution; will launch a critical- and emerging-technology working group to facilitate cooperation on international standards and innovative technologies of the future; and will establish a climate working group to strengthen climate actions globally on mitigation, adaptation, resilience, technology, capacity-building, and climate finance. Our experts and senior officials will continue to meet regularly; our Foreign Ministers will converse often and meet at least once a year. At the leader level, will hold an in-person summit by the end of 2021. The ambition of these engagements is fit to the moment; committed to leveraging the partnership to help the world’s most dynamic region respond to the historic crisis, so that it may be the free, open, accessible, diverse, and thriving Indo-Pacific we all seek.
