Ukraine’s President, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, has extended an invitation to African leaders to attend a global peace summit, emphasizing the need for international cooperation in resolving conflicts.

Zelenskiy firmly rejected the idea of peace talks with Moscow, stating that such discussions would only serve to maintain the ongoing war in Ukraine.

The concept of a global peace summit was initially proposed by Zelenskiy in November, accompanied by a 10-point “peace formula.”

During a press conference with visiting African leaders, President Zelenskiy highlighted his optimism regarding the peace formula’s implementation and extended a formal invitation to the African states to participate in the upcoming summit.

Despite reports of a Russian missile barrage allegedly intended to deter the visiting delegation, the African leaders remained undeterred in their mission to promote peace.

Their visit to Kyiv serves as a testament to the international community’s commitment to supporting Ukraine in its pursuit of peace and stability.

As preparations for the global peace summit continue, Ukraine hopes to foster meaningful dialogue and collaboration with leaders from Africa and around the world to address the ongoing conflicts and promote a peaceful resolution.
