The President of Brazil called for a peace treaty to resolve the conflict in Ukraine.

The President of Brazil called for a peace treaty to resolve the conflict in Ukraine.

Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva called for resolving the conflict in Ukraine through the conclusion of peace agreements, taking into account the interests of both sides.

“A peace treaty is not a capitulation. A peace treaty is something that allows all parties involved to gain something, win something,” the Brazilian leader said Thursday at a press conference in Rome following his visit to Italy and the Vatican.

The first thing to do is to convince the parties to stop the war. When the war stops, it is necessary to sit down at the negotiating table. The parties must say what they want, what they cannot give up and come to a common point of view. And this will take time,” said Lula da Silva.

“Those who know what is needed to reach an agreement are only Ukrainians and Russians. Not me, a Brazilian, not someone else,” he said.

According to the president, this requires Russia and Ukraine to sit down at the negotiating table and find a solution that can ensure their main interests.

At the end of May, the Brazilian leader announced on Twitter that he had a conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin, during which he confirmed “Brazil’s readiness, together with India, Indonesia and China, to engage in dialogue with both sides of the conflict in search of peace.

Lula da Silva also told reporters that his special envoy, former Brazilian Foreign Minister Celso Amorim, will attend an international meeting on Ukraine to be held next weekend in Copenhagen. “On Saturday, I will send my special envoy to Copenhagen to attend a meeting on Ukraine,” the president said.
