France’s Macron says there is chance for peace in Ukraine

Emmanuel Macron, the French president, stated that he believes Ukraine can be peaceful despite Russia’s warnings.

Macron stated that peace is possible and will be achieved at some point. This was at the Rome conference which sought to find ways to promote peace around the globe.

Macron said: “And at some specific moment, given how things are developing and when Ukraine’s citizens and its leaders will decide upon the terms, a peaceful agreement can be made to the other side.”

France has repeatedly stressed that Moscow should be kept in the loop regarding Western diplomatic channels since the Russian invasion of Ukraine on 24 February.
