“Very simple. We had a bilateral (meeting) with Ukraine at 1515 (local time). We were informed that we were late. In the meantime I met with the President of Vietnam. When the President of Vietnam left, Ukraine does not appear. I’m sure he had another meeting,” the Brazilian insisted during the press conference.
Zelensky met with several world leaders – including the G7 leaders of South Korea, Indonesia and India – during his visit to Hiroshima, where he attended the G7 summit this weekend.

I am trying to form a bloc with other countries, with India, with China, with Indonesia, to try a policy of peace in the world.

It seems to me that both believe that someone is going to win and that there is no need to talk peace. Motion cannot be made in war. First the attacks must stop and then a negotiated solution must be found. This is how we will find peace,” Lula added on Twitter.
In recent months Lula has given a Repeated misconduct in his role as mediator. For example, the Russian foreign minister’s recent visit to Brazil and reports from his tour of China, in which he declared that the United States was also responsible for the war, caused deep discomfort in Western powers and Ukraine.

“UN If the Security Council had the power to negotiate, war between Ukraine and Russia might not happen. We need a serious institution with the weight and strength to make decisions. And this is also necessary on the climate issue,” he wrote on Twitter.
