‘Neutral’ Pakistan will skip Ukraine summit in Switzerland

ISLAMABAD: Pakis­tan has turned down Swit­zerland’s invitation to the Ukraine Peace Sum­mit citing scheduling conflicts and other considerations.

“Pakistan received an invitation from Swit­zerland for the Conference, which is being held from 15th to 16th of June. However, due to a host of factors, including scheduling challenges, Pakistan is not participating in this conference,” FO Spokes­person Mumtaz Zahra Baloch said at the weekly media briefing.

The two-day summit being held at the Bürgen­stock resort outside the city of Lucerne in Swit­zerland is designed to gather international support for Ukraine’s vision of peace, detailed in Ukrai­nian President Zelensky’s ten-point peace formula.

Despite the invite to 160 countries, only about 90 are attending, with notable absences including China, and several important counties from Global South, which have shown unwillingness to join an anti-Russia forum and peace discussions in Moscow’s absence.
