TOKYO (Reuters) – The leaders of the United States, Japan, India and Australia will agree to take steps to secure semiconductor supply chains when they meet in Washington next week, the Nikkei business daily reported on Saturday, citing a draft joint statement. .

US President Joe Biden will host the Summit of the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue countries, said Quad, which seeks to strengthen its cooperation to confront China’s growing influence.

According to the draft statement submitted by Nikkei, the four countries will verify their semiconductor supply capabilities and identify vulnerabilities.

The draft declaration also indicates that the use of advanced technologies should be based on the rule of respect for human rights, says the Nikkei on its website.
