A peace conference, based on the peace formula proposed by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, is needed to resolve the war in Ukraine, French President Emmanuel Macron said at a press conference prior to a trilateral meeting between Macron, Zelenskyy, and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, French news channel BMFTV reported on Feb. 9.

“We want to build a world together,” Macron said.

“A world that will ensure justice for Ukraine and its people. A world that will serve our common desire to see a Europe united in solidarity. A world that allows us to build a space of stability and security for all.”

Macron added that Zelenskyy’s 10-point peace plan should form the basis of any future peace conferences, and pledged to further provide Ukraine with all the military aid it needs.

"Ukraine can count on France and its allies to win the war, Russia should not and will not win the war," Macron said.

Scholz has also promised Zelenskyy Germany’s full support, noting that the most recent military aid package includes Leopard 1 and Leopard 2 battle tanks, which Ukrainians have long called for.
