Swiss President, Viola Amherd, revealed during a joint press conference in Bern: ‘I confirmed that Switzerland is ready to organize the conference. We agreed that the details of the further approach will be looked into in depth in order to make this peace process a success.’
The Swiss president underlined that the country will ‘fight for long-lasting and just peace in Ukraine.’
Zelensky added: ‘We are open to all countries that respect our sovereignty and territorial integrity at the peace summit.’
It is understood that Russia will not be invited to the conference.
However, he expressed that he would be keen for China to attend: ‘We would want the countries of the global south to be present, for sure, we would want China to be involved.’
No official timescale was given for when the summit might be held.
It comes as secret documents have been leaked from the German Ministry of Defence that reveal a step-by-step doomsday guide on how Russia will escalate the conflict in Ukraine to an all-out war in just 18 months.
