Saudi Arabia proposes to mediate between Russia & Ukraine

Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Prince Faisal bin Farhan revealed Monday the kingdom’s plan to mediate between Russia and Ukraine caught in a conflict after Russian President launched last month a military invasion to denazify the former soviet country.
Prince Faisal, the Saudi Press Agency reported, held a telephone conversation with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov. The Saudi top diplomat the agency added reaffirmed the Kingdom’s support for a peaceful resolution through negotiations.
The Saudi official also discussed achieving this through the mediation proposed by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS). The kingdom’s de facto leader on March 3 discussed the leaders of Ukraine and Russia and offered to exert all efforts to mediate between parties in the conflict in Ukraine, the agency notes.
Russian President Vladimir Putin late last month ordered the military intervention in neighboring Ukraine with the aim of flashing out “Nazis” that he believes have taken control of the former soviet country. Putin also argues that operation is also launched to prevent the NATO from expanding its footprint.
