Vatican supports Ukrainian Peace Formula
During the third meeting on the Ukrainian Peace Formula in Malta, Vatican Secretary of State Pietro Parolin expressed the Vatican's support for efforts to achieve a fair and lasting peace in Ukraine
Vatican News reported on this.
Pietro Parolin praised the previous meetings in Copenhagen and Jeddah, where President Volodymyr Zelenskyy's Peace Formula was discussed. He called these efforts praiseworthy because they aim to find practical solutions to repair the damage caused by the war and promote the idea that armed conflict should not be the default way to resolve conflicts.
Parolin stated, "This is the core truth that the Holy See has consistently declared when faced with recent wars that have ravaged the world. Pope Francis has persistently called for peace in numerous speeches and actions in support of Ukraine."
He added that the presence of representatives from many countries and international organizations demonstrates our refusal to accept the unfolding tragedy and our determination to confront it.
Parolin emphasized, "Finding a solution is a shared responsibility, not just Ukraine's."
Regarding the Ukrainian Peace Formula discussed at the Malta conference, the Vatican Secretary of State pledged the Holy See's support in addressing humanitarian concerns like food security and environmental protection. He also expressed readiness to continue efforts to alleviate the suffering of Ukrainians and facilitate the return of prisoners and children to Ukraine.
- On Saturday, October 28, the third meeting took place in Malta, where advisers discussed various aspects of the Ukrainian Peace Formula. These discussions included nuclear, food, and energy security, as well as efforts to release captured and deported Ukrainians.
