Peace should be based on territorial integrity of Ukraine - Sandu

Moldova will make efforts to restore peace in Ukraine based on the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine.

President of Moldova Maia Sandu said this during the plenary session of the Peace Summit in Burgenstock, Switzerland, according to a Ukrinform correspondent.

"We all want peace. But what defines peace? We know what is not peace. Surrender is not peace. Occupation of a country is not peace. And it can never be the basis for peace. Does anyone here at this summit believe that giving up part of their territories will ensure a lasting peace? We all need to defend peace. We need a peace that is powerful. And we need to support Ukraine on this path," she said.

Sandu emphasized that "Moldova will continue to make efforts to restore peace in Ukraine, peace with the preservation of territorial integrity and sovereignty." "Moldova supports the Peace Formula of Ukraine," she added.

The Moldovan president also pointed out that the enlargement of the European Union, "a fundamental project of peace," is a guarantee of lasting peace.

"I want to say clearly: Ukrainian peace is Moldova's peace. In this world, which is interconnected, peace cannot exist only in one country. We have a common future for everyone. Glory to Ukraine," Sandu concluded her speech.

As reported, the first Peace Summit officially started on Saturday afternoon in the Swiss Burgenstock resort with the participation of 100 delegations - 92 countries and eight international organizations.
