UN (UrduPoint News / Sputnik – 4th January, 2023) The United Nations has nothing to say about Ukraine’s proposal to convene a peace meeting at the UN in New York, spokesman Farhan Haq said on Tuesday.
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said last week that Kiev wants to convene a peace conference in two months with Secretary-General Antonio Guterres as mediator.
“It’s something you’ll eventually have to check with the others,” Haq said at a briefing on the Ukraine-proposed peace summit. “This is not something the United Nations is planning.”
At this stage there is nothing to report, he added, but the UN will let everyone know if anything comes up.
It is still unclear whether Russian diplomats to the UN will be allowed to participate. What is certain is that the relations between the Russian and Ukrainian delegations with the UN are currently non-existent.
The UN chief, according to Guterres’ office, is only willing to mediate if all parties, including Russia, agree to participate in the summit.
Russian UN envoy Dmitry Polyanskiy responded to Kuleba’s proposal, saying it was impossible to hold a “peace conference” on Ukraine without Russia’s participation.
