Czech Republic offers to help Ukraine implement peace plan
Czech Foreign Minister Jan Lipavsky said that the country is ready to help Ukraine implement several points of the peace plan aimed at ending the war with Russia
This is reported by Novinky.cz with reference to Lipavsky.
Czech President Petr Pavel received a report from the Foreign Minister on the results of the meeting in Jeddah, where the Ukrainian peace formula was discussed.
"I told him (the president - ed.) that we offered professional assistance in the implementation of the Ukrainian ten-point peace plan, especially in the area of nuclear safety and war crimes prosecution," Lipavsky said.
The Czech Republic wants to help Ukraine fulfil the first point of the peace formula - ensuring nuclear and radiation safety - and to join the creation of a tribunal to investigate Russia's war crimes.
Meeting of national security advisers in Jeddah
This weekend, on August 5-6, over 40 countries from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, held talks on ways to end the war in Ukraine. The meeting was held at the level of national security advisors. As previously reported in the press, Saudi Arabia was chosen as the venue for the meeting in order to encourage the world's leading countries, which have so far remained neutral, to support the Ukrainian principles for ending the war.
This is the second meeting at the level of national security advisers and political directors on key principles of peace based on President Volodymyr Zelenskyy's Peace Formula. As Ihor Zhovkva, Deputy Head of the Presidential Office, reported on the eve of the discussions in Jeddah, the number of participants increased from 15 to almost 40 after the success of a similar format consultation in Copenhagen on June 24. Additional countries from the Global South were also involved.
It was reported later, on August 7, that the Chinese Foreign Ministry said that the international talks in Saudi Arabia to find a peaceful solution to the "crisis in Ukraine" had helped "strengthen the international consensus."
On August 8, it was reported that the Institute for the Study of War believes that the Jeddah summit in Saudi Arabia showed an obvious increase in disagreements between Beijing and Moscow over the issue of resolving Russia's full-scale war against Ukraine. However, later, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi assured his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov, that Beijing remained impartial about the war in Ukraine.
Also on August 8, the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, Andriy Yermak, met with representatives of Ukrainian and foreign media to present the results of the second consultations on the key principles for restoring sustainable peace for Ukraine, which took place on August 5-6 in Jeddah.
On 9 August, it was announced that South Korea would participate in a working group to implement the provisions of the Peace Formula proposed by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
