On Friday, June 14, the list of states participating in the Peace Summit in Switzerland was made public. It came as a surprise that the event would be attended by representatives of Saudi Arabia.

OBOZ.UA has obtained the relevant document. However, China has kept its promise and is not on the list of participants in the summit.

It is worth noting that 92 countries and 8 organizations will attend the Peace Summit in Switzerland. Of these, 57 will be represented at the highest level – by presidents or prime ministers. Other countries will be represented by foreign ministry delegations.

There will also be representatives from the Council of Europe, the European Commission, the European Council, the European Parliament, the OSCE, the United Nations, and the Organization of American States. Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew will also come.

On June 2, 2024, it became known that Saudi Arabia did not plan to participate in the Global Peace Summit organized by Ukraine. The reason for this decision was allegedly that the peace summit in Switzerland would not be attended by representatives of the aggressor country Russia. However, Saudi Arabia has not officially confirmed this information.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, it was previously believed that 107 countries and international organizations would take part in the global Peace Summit. However, on June 10, it was reported that there would be about 90 participants. However, it is expected that the final number will be determined by June 14.

As a reminder, in explaining its refusal to attend the summit, China tried to attract developing countries to support its six-point peace plan, which was presented jointly with Brazil in May. The plan calls for an international peace conference "at an appropriate time that is recognized by both Russia and Ukraine, with equal participation of all parties and honest discussion of all peace plans."

Beijing's proposal was supported by 45 countries, and more than 20 countries have either joined or are "seriously considering" such a possibility.

As reported by OBOZ.UA:

– China has announced that it will not participate in the Global Peace Summit to be held in Switzerland this summer. They claimed that the event allegedly did not meet Beijing's requirements that a representative of the aggressor country Russia should participate in it.

– Soon after, China responded to President Zelenskyy's accusations of attempts to disrupt the Peace Summit. Beijing said that China had never "fanned or stoked the flames" of the Russian-Ukrainian war.
