Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba has claimed that Ukraine would like to arrange the second Peace Summit in the Global South state.

Dmytro Kuleba made this statement during an interview on the 24/7 national joint telethon.

He made clear that Saudi Arabia could host the event, but it’s not the only country being considered.

“We are really committed to the second summit being held in one of the countries of the so-called Global South. And there are several high-quality and strong players who are interested in hosting the second summit,” Ukrainian cheif diplomat stated.

Some journalists and analysts previously suggested that Saudi Arabia didn’t sign the final communique to be able to take on a role of intermediator in the future.

Kuleba assures that Ukraine will not just wairt for the next summit on peace, but will also hold a number of events on each peace formula point to prepare all the participants for further negotiations.

Among big players of the Global South, India, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Thailand, Indonesia and the United Arab Emirates attended the first peace summit in Switzerland. However, these countries also didn’t back the communique. Brazil joined merely as an observer.
