Zelensky arrives in Switzerland for Global Peace Summit

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has arrived in Switzerland for the Global Peace Summit.

The Ukrainian leader announced this on the Telegram messaging app, Ukrinform reports.

"I arrived in Switzerland for the Global Peace Summit. There will be two days of active work with countries from all parts of the world, with different nations that are nonetheless united by a common goal of bringing a just and lasting peace in Ukraine closer," Zelensky said.

According to him, the Peace Summit will provide an opportunity for the global majority to take specific steps in areas that matter to everyone in the world: nuclear safety, food security, and the return of prisoners of war and all deported persons, including deported Ukrainian children.

Zelensky said that around 100 countries and international organizations were set to participate in the summit.

"I am grateful to everyone who chose to attend and demonstrate global leadership and commitment to peace, international law, and the UN charter. Together, as responsible global majority, we must make every effort to ensure that wars, aggressions, and colonial occupation can be ended and that they will never repeat. I am certain that everyone in the world is interested in just peace and respect for every nation," Zelensky said.

He said that "the voice of the responsible global majority has the potential to bring peace closer and restore full force to the UN Charter."

The Global Peace Summit will be held in Switzerland on June 15-16.
