Brazil offers solution to turmoil in Ukraine

(MENAFN) According to Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, the president of Brazil, the world should come together as a group of nations committed to finding a solution that would bring Russia and Ukraine to a state of peace. He stressed that Brazil is not going to provide Kiev with weaponry, in contrast to several Western countries.

After meeting with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, the president, who is more generally known by his first name, Lula, remarked in Brasilia, the country's capital, “it is necessary to constitute a group with enough strength to be respected at a negotiating table, and sit down with both sides.”

Lula brought up the G20, a loose association of developed nations with sizable economies that met on a regular basis following the onset of the global financial crisis in 2008. Noting that “we want to propose [a type of] a G20 to put an end to the Russia-Ukraine conflict.”

Lula claimed, "Brazil will make an effort," adding that he had spoken with Scholz and French President Emmanuel Macron about the issue. He said that he is also going to discuss the matter with other international leaders, including Chinese President Xi Jinping, United States Vice President Joe Biden, and others.
