(Reuters) - Leaders of the Quad grouping of countries - the United States, India, Australia and Japan - discussed on Thursday the ongoing Ukraine crisis from Russia's invasion and agreed to a new humanitarian assistance and disaster relief mechanism, the White House said.
"They agreed to stand up a new humanitarian assistance and disaster relief mechanism which will enable the Quad to meet future humanitarian challenges in the Indo-Pacific and provide a channel for communication as they each address and respond to the crisis in Ukraine", the White House said in a statement.
