Belarus says peace conference on Ukraine without Russia is useless

Minsk, May 4 (Prensa Latina) The peace conference on Ukraine planned in Switzerland for June is meaningless without Russia's participation, Belarusian Foreign Minister Sergei Aleinik said on Saturday.

I point out the uselessness of the initiatives recently heard from Switzerland to convene a peace summit on Ukraine without Russia’s participation, which has no prospects because it is simply not aimed at reaching a concrete agreement, the foreign minister told reporters.

Aleinik noted that Belarus has not been invited to attend the conference and added that any peaceful settlement of this conflict and any discussion on European and Eurasian security without the participation of Russia and Belarus are absolutely useless.

Switzerland will hold a peace conference on Ukraine in Burgenstock, near Lucerne, on June 15-16.

Vladimir Yakhov, spokesman for the Russian Embassy in Bern, stressed that the summit is another way to impose an “unworkable” peace formula by President Volodymyr Zelensky, “which does not consider Russia’s interests.”

Swiss Foreign Minister Ignazio Cassis pointed out that “a peace process cannot happen without Russia.”
