The peace summit starts at sunny 28 degrees in Valletta

The Phoenicia Hotel in Valletta is hosting the conference, with high-ranking officials and advisors from various countries discussing the peace plan proposed by Ukraine President Zelensky. Malta is considered a neutral country and has the role of a bridge for peace at the conference. Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip lived there for 70 years.

Kyiv presidential office sees growing support for Ukraine

The head of the Presidential Office in Kyiv, Andriy Jermak, welcomes the growing international support for the Ukrainian peace formula. Nearly 65 countries are participating in the third International Peace Summit, significantly more than the number that attended the previous summit in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, last summer. However, it is not the heads of government who are attending, but their advisors on national security and foreign policy.

During the two-day conference, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy will solicit support for the peace plan and discuss the Zelenskiy formula, one of the main topics of the conference. With growing international support, the Kyiv presidential office sees hope for Ukraine’s future and a possible end to the ongoing conflict.

More Time for Peace Talks Through Wintertime

It’s a stroke of luck that the peace summit is not taking place in Greenland. Thanks to the changeover to winter time, there will be an extra hour on October 29, 2023, compared to Greenland. The two-day conference will discuss a possible future peace summit to end the Russian aggression against Ukraine. The 10-point “peace formula” proposed by Ukrainian leader Zelensky covers various topics, including energy, food, nuclear safety, humanitarian issues, restoration of Ukrainian borders, and the return of captives.

The 10-point “peace formula” includes discussion of:

  • Energy
  • Ukrainian children kidnapped by Russia
  • food
  • nuclear safety
  • humanitarian issues
  • restoration of Ukrainian borders
  • return captives

Russia is not invited to the conference, and China has declined to participate. This is a significant blow as China could have a considerable influence on the Kremlin. Despite this setback, Zelensky views the conference as an opportunity to discuss peace with countries from the Southern Hemisphere. Some countries in Africa and South America could potentially become future members of BRICS, which currently consists of Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa.

Zelensky first announced his 10-point peace plan at a November summit of the Group of 20 major economies. The plan seeks to address various issues related to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine and pave the way for a peaceful resolution. With more time for peace talks through wintertime, there is hope for a positive outcome and a possible end to the conflict.

What is Malta’s role in the conference?

Malta’s Role in the Conference: A Neutral Peacemaker

Malta is a neutral country and does not participate in any wars. The country on the Mediterranean has reinforced its role as an effective and credible peacemaker by hosting the third international Ukraine meeting. However, at the peace meeting in Valletta, Prime Minister Abela stated his support for Ukraine.

“Despite being a neutral country, we cannot not condemn the injustices, atrocities and abuse of power in the region.”

Foreign Minister Ian Borg and Prime Minister’s Secretary Glenn Micallef will represent Malta at the conference. The overwhelming interest of the world in lasting or sustainable peace is reflected in the large number of countries attending the conference. The main supporters of Ukraine are the USA, Germany, Great Britain, France, and the European Union.

As a neutral party, Malta is well-positioned to facilitate discussions and negotiations between conflicting parties. With its beautiful surroundings, the country provides a peaceful and conducive environment for the conference. The hope is that the conference will pave the way for a peaceful resolution to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.
