  • Topic number one is the Peace Formula. "Last year in Jeddah, we held a fruitful meeting at the level of advisors regarding its implementation. Now we are very close to holding the first Peace Summit, and we count on continued active support from Saudi Arabia."
  • Topic number two is the return of prisoners and deported persons. "The leadership of Saudi Arabia has already contributed to the liberation of our people. I am sure that this meeting will also bring results."

For reference:

As reported, on August 5-6, 2023, a second meeting was held in Jeddah at the national security advisers and political directors level regarding the key principles of peace based on the Peace Formula of the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky.
