A lot. But not before ‘the family photo’ of the 4 leaders, where PM Anthony Albanese was seen wearing a blue badge, reportedly a Japanese government seal which denotes his seniority as a leader in case someone doesn’t recognise him… It’s hard to think of a steeper learning curve for the new national leader, but his counterparts congratulated him on the election win. “I don’t know how you’re doing it,” President Joe Biden joked, telling Albanese that it would be ok if he snoozed off during the talks. He stayed awake and the 4 leaders agreed they were navigating “a dark hour in our shared history” due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and Biden urged the group to redouble their efforts to stop President Vladimir Putin’s aggression. And it’s time to send the welcome mat off for a shampoo: Oz will host the Quad leader’s summit next year.
