The Participants of the Global Peace Summit in Switzerland Signed the Joint Communiqué on a Peace Framework

During the Global Peace Summit in Switzerland on June 15-16, participants agreed on a common position on three points: food security, nuclear and energy security, and the release of all captured and deported Ukrainians, adults and children, abducted by Russia. The key principles on these elements for a just and sustainable peace are set out in the Joint Communiqué on a Peace Framework.

This Summit has become the largest international event in support of Ukraine and peace, with 101 countries and international organizations representing all parts of the world and continents - Latin America, the Middle East and Asia, Africa, Europe, the Pacific, Australia, and North America. Two-thirds of the participating countries were represented at the highest level. The Summit allowed each of the participants to demonstrate global leadership. Essentially, this event is the first step towards a just peace based on the UN Charter and the basic principles of international law.

In the Communiqué, the Summit participants emphasized that the use of nuclear energy and nuclear installations must be safe, secured, safe-guarded and environmentally sound, and that Ukrainian nuclear power plants and installations, including Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant, must operate safely and securely under full sovereign control of Ukraine and under the supervision of the IAEA.

The Joint Communiqué also contains a clause on the uninterrupted manufacturing and supply of food products. Attacks on merchant ships, civilian ports and civilian port infrastructure are unacceptable. The Communiqué emphasizes that food security must not be weaponized in any way.

POWs must be released through a full exchange, and all deported and illegally displaced Ukrainian children and civilians must be returned to Ukraine.

These are three of the ten points of the Peace Formula that President Volodymyr Zelenskyy presented in November 2022 during the G20 meeting in Indonesia. The work on the remaining points will continue together with the international community in the working formats determined at the Summit.
