President of Brazil proposes to hold UN summit on Ukraine

Before the UN high-level conference in September, Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva believes a UN summit on the situation in Ukraine is important.

“It is necessary to discuss the war in Ukraine in the UN. During all five months of my presidency, no one invited me to attend a UN meeting to discuss this war. We could reschedule the General Assembly meeting, which usually takes place in September, to June or July to discuss the war,” da Silva said, speaking during a press conference on Monday.

According to the Brazilian president, such an event should invite both Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky to speak, followed by a discussion.

According to da Silva, discussing the situation in Ukraine in the G7 or G20 framework is inappropriate; instead, this subject should be tackled in the UN Security Council.

Earlier, the Brazilian leader said that Russia is a guarantor of long-lasting peace in the entire world.
