Summit on Ukraine without Russia is absurd, says DPRK

Pyongyang, Jun 14 (Prensa Latina) The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) today described as absurd the holding this weekend in Switzerland of a so-called peace summit on Ukraine to which Russia was not invited.

‘The idea of discussing the Ukraine problem in the absence of Russia, a key party to this conflict, is ridiculous and absurd,’ the state-run ACNC news agency said in a commentary.

‘It will not be a summit of peace and dialogue, but a farce that will propagandize confrontation and war expansion, he asserted.

Set for Saturday and Sunday, the meeting will be attended by delegations from 90 countries and international bodies, under the purported objectives of providing a platform for dialogue, outlining a framework for a cessation of hostilities in Ukraine, and drawing up a roadmap that would engage the warring parties in a peace process.

ACNC branded the summit a ‘sinister political plot by the gringo master (the United States) and his lackey’ (the government of Vladimir Zelensky) to allow Ukraine to recover from its successive battlefield defeats and gain greater support from NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization).

If they (Washington, Kiev and their allies) were really interested in solving the problem in Ukraine and working for world peace, it would be more profitable and correct for them to call the conflicting parties to a dialogue based on equality, sincerity and good faith, instead of using deception and hypocrisy, he concluded.
