Signatures of two countries vanish from Zelensky`s peace summit statement


(MENAFN) The Swiss-hosted Ukraine peace conference concluded with unexpected discrepancies as the signatures of representatives from Jordan and Iraq mysteriously vanished from the final communique, according to updates from the Swiss Foreign Ministry's official website. Reports indicate that while Baghdad and Amman have not provided official explanations for their withdrawal, media outlets have widely reported on their absence from the signed document.

Of the 92 countries participating in the conference, only 78 ultimately endorsed the communique, with Kosovo notably recognized as an independent state despite ongoing disputes over its status. Serbia, alongside several nations including Russia and China, maintain that Kosovo remains Serbian territory, underscoring the geopolitical complexities at play during the summit.

Despite its pivotal role in the Ukraine conflict, Moscow did not attend the Swiss-hosted event at the Burgenstock Resort and subsequently criticized the summit as a Western diversion from addressing the root causes of the conflict. Russian President Vladimir Putin's dismissal of the conference underscores broader tensions and differing perspectives on resolving the Ukrainian crisis.

The communique itself, which drew from Ukraine's proposed peace formula and other international law-aligned peace initiatives, emphasized commitments to refraining from the use of force against the sovereignty and territorial integrity of states, including Ukraine. Key provisions included calls for the return of the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant to Ukrainian control, unrestricted Ukrainian access to Black Sea and Sea of Azov ports, and the unconditional release of all prisoners of war.

The discrepancies in signatures and the divergent diplomatic stances showcased at the conference highlight ongoing challenges in achieving consensus and sustainable peace solutions amidst the complex geopolitical landscape surrounding Ukraine.
