The Ukrainian President announced that he had proposed a peace formula in his meeting with the US president which he hoped would result in joint security guarantees for decades to come.

Iran PressAmerica: Volodymyr Zelensky said on Thursday that he discussed a 10-point peace formula with Joe Biden and expressed his willingness to take part in a peace summit. He didn’t provide any further details.

However, he said that any such discussions would also depend on Russia’s willingness to negotiate and the participation of the international legal order.

"International legal order is our joint task. We need peace," he said addressing US Congress in English after talks with Biden. "Ukraine has already offered proposals which I discussed with President Biden. Our peace formula - ten points which should and must be implemented for our joint security guaranteed for decades ahead."

"And the summit which can be held. I am glad to share that President Biden supported our peace initiative today. Each of you ladies and gentlemen can assist in the implementation to ensure that America’s leadership remains solid, bicameral, and bipartisan," he added.

At the White House earlier, Zelensky said, "For me as a president, just peace is no compromises as to the sovereignty, freedom, and territorial integrity of my country, the payback for all the damages inflicted by Russia."

The US administration has said that it would not discuss peace without Ukraine at the table, but senior US officials have begun nudging Kyiv to start thinking about peace talks in the event winter stalls its momentum on the battlefield.
