Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba stated this on June 29.

On Saturday, he took part in a panel discussion at the Dubrovnik Forum in Croatia, where he emphasized that the war should end with a just and lasting peace that will bring understanding to all countries of the world about the potential consequences of an act of aggression against a sovereign state.

According to him, it is not only about restoring borders or bringing the aggressor to justice, but also about creating a reality in which new aggression will become impossible.

"As we know from our own recent history, as well as from the history of other regions, peace without justice leads to a new war. Therefore, the goal is not just to end the war, but to create a reality in which peace is just and lasting, and a new war becomes impossible. This will be a victory," the minister said.

In this context, Dmytro Kuleba noted the key role of the Peace Summit and emphasized that he would continue to engage with countries from all over the world to find solutions that will restore a just peace.

"The Peace Summit in Switzerland brought together countries from all over the world - north, south, east, and west - and demonstrated that they all share something in common. This "something" is the UN Charter, the principles of international law and the need to respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of countries. And when we see that all these countries are ready to stand together and act together, it certainly gives us confidence that a just and lasting peace is possible," he said.

The Foreign Minister emphasized that the path to a just and lasting peace is not easy, but it has no alternatives.  According to him, the world must erase the lines drawn by others to ensure respect for the principles that allow us all to live and prosper.

"There are things that unite us all and erase these differences. This is the desire to live in peace and develop. For Ukraine, this is peace and recovery, which, of course, is a prerequisite for development," the minister summarized.

  • President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that over the next few months, Ukraine should prepare a detailed action plan for consideration at the second Peace Summit.
