TOKYO: World leaders praised India and Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Quad Summit.

While criticizing China, US President Joe Biden praised India for its Covid defense.

Despite being the same size, India succeeded in handling Covid. China has failed miserably. ' - Biden said.

U.S. sources said that Biden's address praising Modi was unscripted as he made a special intervention during the speech.

Australian Prime Minister Antony Albanese described India's distribution of vaccines to other countries as India's strength and success.

The Prime Minister of Japan Fumio Kishida congratulated India on the fact that Thailand and Cambodia have gratefully accepted the Indian - made vaccines distributed under the Quad Vaccine Initiative.
