US President Joe Biden will attend the High-Level Conference on Peace in Ukraine, which is expected to be held in Switzerland in mid-June, according to Swiss media.

The date for it has yet to be set, but several media outlets this week reported June 16 and 17 as the most likely dates.

The invitations have not yet been sent, but the NZZ newspaper writes, citing “several reliable sources”, that it has been informed that the US president will attend.

The Swiss authorities have so far not released any details about this conference or the preparations for its holding.

Switzerland announced on January 15 that it had agreed to host a peace conference in Ukraine during a visit to the country by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who met there with his Swiss counterpart Viola Amhert.

Zelensky had then referred to a “summit” and had immediately ruled out the possibility that Russia could participate in it. But Switzerland, which wants to maintain its neutrality, preferred to refer to a “High-Level Conference on Peace in Ukraine” and is struggling to attract China and other powers among emerging economies to attend.

Swiss Foreign Minister Ignacio Cassis also tried to reach out to Moscow in a January meeting in New York with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov. However, Russia considers that Switzerland has lost its neutrality by adopting the sanctions imposed by the European Union.

Representatives of dozens of countries are expected at the conference, according to media reports.

According to Bloomberg, it will not be held in Geneva, as some media had reported, but near Lucerne, in the central part of Switzerland, at the luxurious Bürgenstock Hotel, which is idyllically located on the hillside above Lake Lucerne.
