Olaf Scholz sees opportunities in planned Ukraine summit

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz sees opportunities in the peace conference on Ukraine scheduled for next month. He noted that the discussions at this forum will be an important step towards resolving global peace issues.

This was reported by Tagesschau. Scholz expressed hope that Arab countries, India, South Africa, Brazil, and China would also join the summit.

"Even if the main issue of peace is not discussed there yet, but the issues that are also part of it, it would be a big step. It would be possible to build on this," Scholz said during a discussion organized by Redaktionsnetz Deutschland (RND) in Potsdam.

The Peace Summit will take place on June 15-16 in Burgenstock, Switzerland, where Switzerland has invited more than 160 countries and international organizations, but not Russia.

"It is very important for me that the countries of the Arabian Peninsula, India, South Africa, Brazil and, if possible, China are also there," the German Chancellor added.

Earlier it was reported that Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew confirmed that he would participate in the Global Peace Summit to be held in Switzerland in June 2024. He confirmed his decision in a conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky invited Argentine President Javier Milea to take part in the first peace summit in Ukraine. The event will take place in June 2024 in Switzerland.

As a reminder, Zelensky said that Ukraine is intensively preparing for the Peace Summit in Switzerland and is working to ensure that all continents are represented and that every leader can join in restoring the full force and effectiveness of the UN Charter. The more nations of the world join the summit, the sooner peace can be restored to the continent.
