Ukraine is bringing together dozens of world leaders and international organisations at the Burgenstock resort in Switzerland this weekend to mount pressure on Russia and outline a path towards peace.

Mohammed bin Salman reaffirmed the Kingdom’s keenness and support for all international efforts aimed at resolving the crisis, while continuing to contribute to finding ways to mitigate the humanitarian impact.

Bilateral relations between Ukraine and Saudi Arabia were also discussed, Zelensky added.
