Officials are considering a trilateral summit with U.S. President Joe Biden, Polish President Andrzej Duda and Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky during Biden's trip to Europe towards the end of February, DGP daily newspaper reports citing anonymous sources.
- Earlier reports had suggested that Biden could travel to Europe to mark the anniversary of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, with Poland considered as one of the potential destinations. The POTUS later confirmed these rumours but refused to give a specific date of his visit.
- DGP suggests that the three leaders could meet in either Warsaw or Rzeszow, which is located close to the border and has served as the main hub for the delivery of Western military and humanitarian support to Ukraine.
- According to the newspaper, Zelensky is looking to unveil a 10-point peace plan and call on the international community to organise a conference on the future of Ukraine. The plan would include a request for security guarantees from countries such as the U.S., Canada, Turkey, the UK, Israel, Germany and Poland.
- DGP notes that the peace plan would be part of Ukraine's broader diplomatic offensive to rally international partners behind Kyiv as it resists the ongoing Russian invasion. It would stress that Ukraine would not negotiate on its territorial integrity within its internationally recognised borders.
