The President of the United Arab Emirates, Muhammad bin Zayed Al Nahajjan, at the request of Pope Francis, wants to bring about a meeting of the presidents of Ukraine and Russia at the climate summit. Joe Biden was notified of the case.
The French-language portal L’Orient-Le Jour from Lebanon reported that the President of the United Arab Emirates, Muhammad bin Zayed Al Nahayan, at the request of Pope Francis, wants to bring Volodymyr Zelensky and Vladimir Putin to COP28. The climate summit will take place from November 30 to December 12 in Dubai. For now, it is not known whether the presidents of Ukraine and Russia will take part in the summit and receive invitations.
The Holy Father was to declare his readiness to take joint action with the sheikh only to “stop the war in Ukraine”. The UAE president was about to discuss his plans with US leader Joe Biden, who promised to provide “comprehensive assistance” in achieving the goal. Muhammad bin Zayed Al Nahayyan has visited the country twice since the outbreak of the conflict caused by Russia and met with Putin about ending the invasion.
When will the war in Ukraine end? Other countries are presenting proposals for peace plans
The proposal of the president of the United Arab Emirates is another report on peace negotiations. The last of them took place last weekend in Saudi Arabia. The talks were attended by representatives of about 40 countries, without the participation of Russia. On the part of Poland, the invitation was received by Presidential Minister Marcin Przydacz. China was already about to press for another meeting.
Representatives of African countries also tried to present their peace proposal. South African President Cyril Ramaphosa first met with Zelensky in mid-June, and then flew to Saint Petersburg to talk with Putin. In turn, in February, China presented a plan to end the war. The 12-point document was presented on the anniversary of the Russian invasion.
