Canada will participate in the upcoming global peace summit for Ukraine, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on May 11.

The summit will be held in Switzerland on June 15-16 and will focus on peace in Ukraine under the terms of President Volodymyr Zelensky's 10-point peace formula, a plan that calls for a complete withdrawal of Russian troops from occupied Ukrainian lands.

"The First Peace Summit for Ukraine is in June — and Canada will be there," Trudeau wrote on X.

"I look forward to joining other world leaders to advance our shared goal of just and lasting peace for Ukraine."

Some 160 national delegations were invited to the peace summit, and numerous countries have confirmed their participation.

Participants of the global peace summit will formulate a common negotiating position on the outcome of the war and submit it to Russia, presidential spokesperson Serhii Nykyforov said on May 3, according to Deutsche Welle.

Macron: Ukraine must be allowed to strike bases on Russian territory from which missiles are fired.

"We think that we should allow them to neutralize military sites where missiles are fired, from where... Ukraine is attacked," Macron said at a press conference with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz. "If we tell them (Ukraine) that you are not allowed to target the place from which missiles are fired, we are in fact telling them that we are providing you with weapons but you cannot defend yourself."
