Brazilian President, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva has called for settling the Ukraine crisis under a framework of the United Nations.
Lula made the remarks at the just-concluded Group of Seven (G7) summit working session as an invited state leader.
“The Ukraine crisis should be discussed under a framework of the United Nations rather than the G7,’’ he noted at a press conference on Monday, criticising the U.S. government for inciting tensions.
The Brazilian president said that the U.S. administration’s aid to Ukraine and unbridled attacks on Russia are not helping to solve the Ukraine crisis peacefully.
He said the challenges to peace and security is now plaguing the world go far beyond Europe.
The president stressed that Israelis and Palestinians, Yemenis, Syrians, and people in many other countries and regions all deserve to live in peace.
Lula said: “These conflicts should receive the same degree of international attention.”
This year, the G7 invited leaders of countries such as Brazil and a number of international organisations seeking cooperation with the so-called Global South.”
