The Jeddah Summit on achieving peace in Ukraine aimed to bridge global perspectives, serving the cause of peace in Ukrainian territories.
This summit will affect the process of restoring international security and peace, which suffered due to the ongoing Russian-Ukrainian war.
The Russian-Ukrainian conflict has created divisions and ruptures within the international system, aligning some with Russia and others with Ukraine.
Such a divided state does not help the international community establish a new world order characterized by flexibility and the ability to mitigate the sources of conflicts, which have impacted global economies and people’s aspirations for a peaceful world.
The international system is on the brink of political and economic changes, making it difficult to revert to the old unipolar system.
Various competitive players are vying for significant roles in the new multipolar system. Hence, it is crucial to pave the way for the new global system, contributing to drying up sources of conflicts and building a more adaptable framework based on competition that serves international security and peace.
This also ensures the protection of the global economy, which has suffered from conflict-related disruptions.
Moreover, it underscores the significance of the Jeddah Summit hosted by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia regarding the Ukrainian crisis, which aims to establish a more convergent international phase, aligning international viewpoints.
I believe that the Russian-Ukrainian crisis has posed one of the greatest challenges to the world order. Transitioning into this new phase requires a reduction of aggressive political competition and the creation of high flexibility among all influential political parties, based on a political mindset focused on maintaining international security.
Hence, the Jeddah Summit, led by Saudi Arabia, aimed to set new rules to address the chaotic international political system. It successfully achieved political consensus, contributing to mending the ruptures within the international system and establishing solid foundations for the upcoming phase.
Furthermore, this summit succeeded in reaching a convergent viewpoint that restores matters to their original foundation upon which international relations were established, focusing on the preservation of the sovereignty of nations, as the main principle in international relations.
This summit’s role is not limited to creating an international approach to resolving the Ukrainian crisis. Its impact extends to constructing more ethical international political and economic frameworks, moving away from the aggression that characterized the old international system.
Moreover, it affirms the importance of Saudi Arabia’s role in the new international system as a beacon of global peace.
