    President Duda Addresses Nuclear Security at Swiss Peace Summit

    During the second day of the Peace Summit in Switzerland, President Andrzej Duda participated in a thematic session on nuclear security. In his speech, Duda highlighted the occupation of the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant by Russian forces and the deployment of Russian tactical weapons in Belarus. These actions, he argued, pose significant risks not only to Ukraine but to global security.

    Global Delegations and Key Issues

    The Peace Summit for Ukraine, held in Switzerland, gathers around 100 delegations from across the globe. The summit addresses critical issues that unite the world, such as civilian safety, humanitarian concerns, food security, and nuclear safety. President Duda participated in the opening plenary session, emphasizing that while Russia is responsible for the aggression against Ukraine, Belarus aids Russia by conducting hybrid attacks on the Baltic States and Poland’s eastern border for the past three years.

    On the sidelines of the summit in Bürgenstock near Lucerne, President Duda held meetings with Georgian President Salome Zurabishvili and North Macedonian President Gordana Siljanovska-Davkova. These discussions likely focused on regional security and cooperation in response to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.

    A Call for Global Unity

    President Duda’s participation and speeches at the summit underscore the importance of international solidarity in addressing the threats posed by Russia’s actions in Ukraine. The summit aims to foster collaboration among nations to ensure civilian safety and address the broader implications of nuclear and hybrid warfare.
