UNSC: Mozambique Advocates “Direct Dialogue” Between Russia and Ukraine for Peace

Mozambique continues to advocate direct dialogue between Russia and Ukraine to end the conflict between the parties. Maintaining peace and security in Ukraine, which has been at war with Russia since February last year, was under discussion at Friday’s (8) session of the United Nations (UN) Security Council.

On the occasion, Mozambique’s deputy representative to the United Nations, Domingos Fernandes, said that the country believes that dialogue is crucial, without any preconditions.

“Mozambique believes that it is crucial for hostilities to cease immediately and for negotiations to begin involving all parties without preconditions and on the basis of trust. It is necessary to adopt a constructive and inclusive approach, focussed on common benefits and perspectives,” reiterated Domingos Fernandes, quoted by Rádio Moçambique.

Mozambique’s position is also supported by Ghana and Gabon, which make up the so-called A3, the group of three African countries that are members of the UN Security Council.

The debate on the situation in Ukraine in the UN Security Council Chamber took place on the same day that the country’s President said that “Russia, with its air superiority, is halting the progress of the Ukrainian counter-offensive”, complaining about the “slowdown in Western military aid and sanctions against Moscow”.

Zelensky’s remarks followed a visit by US Secretary of State Antony Blinken to Kiev, where he announced a new aid package for Ukraine totalling one billion dollars.
