Saudi Arabia supported efforts for a Ukrainian settlement.

Saudi Arabia supports international efforts to resolve the Ukrainian crisis and is ready to mediate between Russia and Ukraine, said Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud.

The summit of the League of Arab States (LAS), in which Syrian President Bashar al-Assad participates for the first time in many years, started on Friday in Saudi Jeddah.

“We support international efforts to resolve the Ukrainian crisis and are ready to act as mediators between Russia and Ukraine,” the Saudi heir said during his opening speech.


Vladimir Zelensky, who arrived in Saudi Arabia, also spoke at the summit.

Earlier, Arab diplomats have repeatedly declared the neutrality of the countries of the region in relation to the crisis in Ukraine. In particular, in the final statement of the Arab League summit held in Algiers in November 2022, the leaders of the Arab world declared their commitment to the principle of neutrality and the pan-Arab position on the conflict in Ukraine.
