Peace talks regarding Ukraine have begun in Saudi Arabia. They are taking place in the city of Jeddah, according to Al Arabiya.

The two-day meeting is part of Ukraine's diplomatic initiative aimed at securing support not only from its main Western allies but also from Southern countries that do not wish to take sides in the conflict.

Ukraine and its allies hope that the key principles for ending Russia's war against Ukraine will be agreed upon during the meeting in Jeddah.

The summit involves national security advisors and other high-ranking officials from around 40 countries.

Russia is not participating in the forum, but the Kremlin stated that it will "monitor" the progress of the meeting.
