The United Nations will be represented at the Peace Summit to end the war in Ukraine, which will take place in June in Switzerland. It is not yet known which representatives of the organization will attend the event.

This was announced at a briefing on Monday, June 3, by Deputy Spokesperson for the UN Secretary-General Farhan Haq, Ukrinform reports. He noted that the UN will name its representative closer to the date of the Peace Summit.

"The fundamental comment on this is as follows: we will participate in the Summit. Closer to the date of the event, we will be able to inform you who exactly will be there," emphasized Haq.

The Global Peace Summit will be held on June 15-16 in Switzerland. It is expected to be attended by representatives of more than a hundred countries from all continents.

Earlier, Ukraine's permanent representative to the UN, Serhiy Kyslytsia, said that Russia is putting enormous pressure on officials and UN member states because of their participation in the Peace Summit.

According to him, the Russians are trying to keep member states and the UN General Secretariat from joining the Peace Formula.

"Russia is making a lot of efforts to undermine this event. We are talking about both open and covert pressure on the Secretary General and other UN officials to prevent their presence at the summit in Switzerland," Kyslytsia said.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, US President Joe Biden will not attend the Peace Summit to be held in Switzerland on June 15-16. Washington will be represented at the event by Vice President Kamala Harris and National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan.
