Czech Republic to Assist in Implementation of Zelensky's Peace Formula
The Czech Republic has offered its support for the implementation of the so-called 'peace formula' for Ukraine, particularly in the areas of nuclear safety and prosecution of war crimes. This assistance was proposed during consultations in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, where representatives from various countries convened.
Ceske Noviny reported this.
Speaking after a conversation with President Petr Pavel, Czech Foreign Minister Jan Lipavsky stated, "I informed him that we have offered professional assistance in executing Ukraine's ten-point peace plan, especially in the fields of nuclear safety and the prosecution of war crimes."
Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Jan Marian provided further insights in an interview with Channel 24. He emphasized that the Western approach towards Central Europe has evolved considerably since the onset of Russia's large-scale invasion, resulting in increased understanding from countries in the region.
The diplomatic meeting of representatives and government advisors from dozens of nations concluded without a specific agreement, but a commitment to continue international consultations. The ultimate stage of this process is expected to be a high-level summit for peace.
According to Marian, the talks in Saudi Arabia represented a coalition of states willing to support Ukraine, recognizing the global ramifications of Russia's full-scale invasion. The consequences range from food security and humanitarian impacts to trade routes and transportation. It is essential that the focus remains on Ukraine's priorities.
Marian underscored that peace cannot be discussed while Russia continues to target peaceful Ukrainian civilians, dismantle infrastructure, and disregard Ukraine's sovereignty. He added, "We must stand by Kyiv," confirming that all participants of the Jeddah talks pledged to support Ukraine's territorial integrity, including Global South countries such as Brazil, India, and China.
Marian noted that Saudi Arabia is capable of bringing countries like Brazil, India, and China to the negotiation table. He further elaborated that Moscow's actions in recent years have led other nations to conclude that aggression on the global political stage will not yield benefits.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky presented the 'Ukrainian peace formula' during his address at the G20 Summit in Bali, Indonesia. The formula outlines a practical plan to end the conflict with Russia and consists of ten specific points.
Each point of Zelensky's plan is well-defined, encompassing radiation and nuclear safety, food and energy security, prevention of ecocide, release of all detainees and deportees, adherence to the UN Charter and restoration of Ukraine's territorial integrity and global order, withdrawal of Russian forces, cessation of hostilities, and prevention of escalation with confirmation of war's end.
