President Fernández vows to promote dialogue between Russia and Ukraine at G20

Alberto Fernandez says he will utilise contacts with other G20 leaders to try to bring Russia and Ukraine to the negotiating table.

President Alberto Fernandez said Saturday in Paris that he will utilise his contacts with other G20 leaders to try to bring Russia and Ukraine to the negotiating table.

"We agreed with [French] President [Emmanuel] Macron to talk to other G20 leaders to see if we can have some kind of more concrete actions in favour of setting up a table that recovers dialogue and that begins with a ceasefire," said the Peronist leader at a press conference in Paris.

Fernández made these declarations at the end of his stop in the French capital, where he met with MAcronand presented his views on the war in Ukraine within the framework of the Paris Peace Forum.

During the event, the Frente de Todos leader denounced the "indecency" of the conflict, warned of the risk of nuclear attacks and pointed out that the war was having serious consequences for the rest of the world, particularly in developing countries.

The dialogue is "between Ukraine and Russia," but the solution must be global and outside the logic of blocs, stressed Fernández at the press conference, adding that he wanted to part of the negotiations.

"I want Argentina to be seated at the resolution table, because I want to find a solution," he added.

Back in June, Fernández and the leaders of a number of emerging countries such as South Africa, India and Indonesia participated in a G7 meeting of the most advanced economies in Munich, where the consequences of the war in Ukraine were discussed.

This issue is likely to dominate the agenda at the upcoming G20 Leaders Summit taking place November 14 to 17  in Bali, Indonesia.
