The meeting in Jeddah brought Ukraine closer to implementing the Peace Formula proposed by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. Work continues on the preparation and holding of the Global Peace Summit. This was stated by Head of the Office of the President Andriy Yermak, commenting on the results of consultations at the level of diplomatic advisors in Saudi Arabia.
"With each step, the number of countries that unconditionally respect Ukraine's independence, territorial integrity, sovereignty and are ready to work on a part or the whole of the Peace Formula is growing. And the isolation of Russia is growing as well," stated Andriy Yermak.
According to him, the main topic of the meeting was the Ukrainian Peace Formula. The overwhelming majority of partners clearly emphasized the need to withdraw Russian troops from the territory of Ukraine and the impossibility of freezing the war in any form, as this would only give time to prepare for new attacks on Ukrainian territory.
The Head of the President's Office noted that the implementation of Volodymyr Zelenskyy's Peace Formula is part of Ukraine's victory strategy. Therefore, in his opinion, the meeting in Jeddah will go down in history.
"We are the ones keeping this initiative today, and I am very pleased that more and more countries support us in this," he added.
According to the Head of the President's Office, the consultations in Jeddah were attended by representatives of about 40 countries, which is three times more than at the previous meeting of this level in Copenhagen.
Andriy Yermak called the participation of the Chinese representative in the consultations important and noted that it was made possible thanks to the great work done by representatives of Ukraine and our partners from Saudi Arabia.
"The representative of China took an active part in the conversations and expressed his opinion. The main thing we heard from the Chinese representative is that China is ready to continue participating in this format," the Head of the Presidential Office emphasized.
According to Andriy Yermak, the participants of the meeting in Jeddah agreed to continue working in this format, so it will only expand.
"We will continue to work on the preparation and holding of the Global Peace Summit, after which we will start working on the implementation of each of the ten points. Of course, including the point that will legally enshrine the end of this war," said the Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine.
