South African President Cyril Ramaphosa announced on Tuesday that Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy have agreed to meet with a group of African leaders to discuss a possible peace plan for the conflict.
Ramaphosa stated at a joint press conference with Singapore’s prime minister, “My discussions with the two leaders demonstrated that they are both ready to receive the African leaders and to have discussions on how this conflict can be brought to an end.”
He stated, “The outcome of those talks will determine whether that succeeds or fails.”
