A peace that would create a space of stability and security for all," Macron assured this Wednesday during a press conference with his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky

"Ukraine can count on us in building peace. The plan that you offered is an essential basis for discussions on this path, which should lead us towards an international peace conference," he told the Ukrainian president.
