Ukraine's Zelenskyy thanks Marcos for Philippine participation in peace summit

Manila’s participation in a high-level peace summit later this month was praised by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Monday ( Jun 3 ) as a “very strong signal” towards achieving peace in the war-torn nation.

In their first in- people gathering in Manila, Zelenskyy even thanked President Ferdinand Marcos Jr for his country’s” distinct position” on Russia’s occupation of Ukraine’s territories, while the Spanish leader assured him of his extended support.

” I’m happy to hear today from you that you participate ( in ) our basic steps to the peace”, Zelenskyy told Marcos during their bilateral meeting, speaking in English. He thanked Marcos for Manila’s involvement in the harmony conference, saying “it’s a pretty powerful signal”.

Marcos would enter the conference or he would give an envoy, it was not immediately known.

” Thank you so much ( for ) your big word, and clear position… about this Russian occupation of our territories”, he said, adding that Ukraine will open an embassy in Manila this year.
