International Summit to Address Peace Terms

Saudi Arabia is preparing to hold talks in August focusing on Ukraine, with invitations extended to Western states, Ukraine, and significant developing nations like India and Brazil, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal.

Senior Officials from 30 Countries to Participate

The meeting is expected to assemble senior officials from approximately 30 countries, including Indonesia, Egypt, Mexico, Chile, and Zambia, in Jeddah on August 5 and 6. Diplomats familiar with the matter disclosed these details.

Seeking International Support for Ukraine’s Favorable Peace Terms

Ukraine and Western officials aim to garner international support for peace terms that favor Ukraine during the talks, which deliberately exclude Russia.

Kremlin’s Stance on Peace Talks with Ukraine

The Kremlin, which has claimed annexation of a significant portion of Ukraine’s territory, stated its willingness to engage in peace talks with Ukraine only if Kyiv accepts what it calls “new realities,” alluding to its territorial claims. Kyiv, on the other hand, maintains that negotiations with Russia can only proceed once Moscow withdraws its troops.

Attendance of Invited Countries

While it remains uncertain how many invited countries will attend the summit, those who participated in a similar round of talks in Copenhagen in June are expected to be present once again. Countries such as Britain, South Africa, Poland, and the EU have confirmed their attendance, and the US national security adviser, Jake Sullivan, is also anticipated to participate.
