The Principality of Monaco participated in the first ‘Peace Summit in Ukraine’ organizsed by Switzerland at the request of Ukraine, at the Bürgenstock near Lucerne on Saturday, June 15 and Sunday, June 16.

Represented by Mrs. Isabelle Berro-Amadeï, Government Advisor-Minister for External Relations and Cooperation, accompanied by Mrs Carole Lanteri, Ambassador to the Swiss Federal Council, the Principality was among 100 countries and international organisations that responded to the invitation. Around fifty Heads of State and Government from all continents were present at this event.

The Summit aimed to give impetus to the peace process, instil confidence, and create a perspective for subsequent stages in which Russia can be involved. The discussions were organised around three main themes, representing major global challenges: Nuclear safety, Food safety and the human dimension of the conflict such as the forced displacement of populations, including children.

    At the end of the Summit, the States adopted a declaration in which the principles of the Charter of Nations and international law were reaffirmed but also the common vision which emerged during the discussions around the three themes mentioned. Finally, the participants agreed to continue the efforts underway.

    On the sidelines of this Summit, Ms. Berro-Amadeï met the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, Mr. Dmytro Kuleba. The latter wanted to thank the Principality for the support provided both bilaterally and in the multilateral framework.
