Ukraine President Zelenskyy thanks Philippines' Marcos for support

Zelenskyy addressed the last day of the Shangri-La Dialogue forum, asking for support and participation at a summit in Switzerland planned for Jun 15 to 16 aimed at bringing peace to his war-ravaged nation.

Marcos delivered the keynote address at the forum, criticising illegal, coercive aggression in the South China Sea, without naming China.

Marcos told Zelenskyy he was “honoured” the Ukrainian leader visited Manila.

“It’s a great pleasure to meet, to discuss, issues that are common for both countries, and hopefully, we find ways for both of us together,” Marcos said.

Russia, which called its actions in Ukraine a “special operation”, has not been invited to the planned summit in Switzerland and China has confirmed it will not attend.

Zelenskyy has urged US President Joe Biden to attend, but Washington has not confirmed who it will send.

While in Singapore, Zelenskyy told a news conference that he was not able to meet the Chinese delegation at the conference and was disappointed that Beijing would not attend the summit.
