107 Countries Confirm Participation in Swiss Peace Summit

The Office of the President of Ukraine has announced that 107 countries and organizations have confirmed their participation in the upcoming Summit on Peace for Ukraine in Switzerland.

This was announced by the spokesperson for the President of Ukraine, Serhii Nykyforov shared this information during the national telethon on June 3.

Nykyforov noted that, as of now, 107 countries and international organizations have confirmed their attendance at the Summit on Peace for Ukraine. He added that the primary goal of President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s visit to Southeast Asia was to communicate Ukraine’s position to this part of the world and to persuade these countries to join the summit.

Nykyforov mentioned that the Philippines, Singapore, and Timor-Leste might be represented at the summit in some capacity, following President Zelenskyy’s meetings with their leaders during his visit to Asia.

Earlier, President Zelenskyy stated that if President Joe Biden does not attend the Summit on Peace for Ukraine, it would be seen as a victory for Russian self-proclaimed president Vladimir Putin. Kyiv is still hopeful for Biden’s participation, although it is not confirmed, as the American president has planned campaign events in California at that time.

The White House has assured that the United States' support for Ukraine remains steadfast, regardless of who represents the country at the Summit on Peace for Ukraine in Switzerland.

The Summit on Peace for Ukraine is scheduled to take place on June 15-16, 2024, in Bürgenstock, near the Swiss city of Lucerne.
