alkhaleej.ae | Why the UAE did not sign, 18 June adjustment bureaus
Because the conference, hosted by Switzerland on June 15 and 16, with the presence of more than 90 delegations from different countries of the world, carried the slogan "peace in Ukraine". And because the items of the statement issued by [them] are difficult to achieve, in order to achieve the goal of achieving peace, with the absence of Russia from the conference, which is a key party to the war.
