Kishida calls for peace as Russia’s absence overshadows Ukraine’s summit

Representatives of more than 90 countries and a dozen international organizations gathered in the Swiss city of Burgenstock on Saturday for the first day of an international conference calling for a concrete and unified road map to peace in Ukraine.

One day after a joint communiqué from the Group of Seven laid out the bloc’s unwavering commitment to the war-torn country, the conference – a largely symbolic show of solidarity – began to lay the foundation for a lasting peace process.

But the absence of both Russia, which was not invited, and its main backer China, raised doubts about the summit’s impact, especially as the conflict in Gaza distracts from global attention.
