He said that deep discussions would be held in Bürgenstock on topics important not only for Ukraine, but also for the whole world: the situation with prisoners of war, nuclear threats, and food security. According to the top diplomat, the ongoing conflict has implications for the entire international community.

Cassis noted that the topics for discussion will include humanitarian aid, nuclear security, and food security – elements, as indicated by the chief of Swiss diplomacy, of various peace plans for Ukraine, such as the African, Chinese, Brazilian, and Ukrainian peace formulas.

According to the official, "they represent the measures of trust necessary to build a grammar of peace, beyond the different points of view of this war."
