Belarus authorities on Monday disclosed that the venue for the peace talks between delegates from Ukraine and Russia is set.
The development was disclosed as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine enters its fifth day.
Naija News had earlier reported that Ukraine rejected the peace talk in Belarus due to the country’s role as facilitator in Russia’s attack on Ukraine.
Belarusian foreign ministry while speaking on the venue wrote, “The venue for talks between Russia and Ukraine in Belarus has been prepared, the arrival of delegations is expected.”
The ministry in a post on social media posted a picture of a long table with Russian and Ukrainian flags.
The spokesman of the Belarusian foreign ministry, Anatoly Glaz in a separate statement wrote, “The talks will start as soon as all the delegations arrive at the meeting point.”
Recall that Russia invaded Ukraine on Thursday, a decision which was widely condemned by world leaders.
Russia’s invasion has led to the death of hundreds of people, while properties have been destroyed.
The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky while speaking on the peace talk had given the condition to meet with delegates of Russia.
Zelensky said, “As always: I do not believe in the outcome of this meeting, but let them try.”
