Quote: "Firstly, any use of nuclear energy and nuclear installations must be safe, secured, safe-guarded and environmentally sound. Ukrainian nuclear power plants and installations, including Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant, must operate safely and securely under full sovereign control of Ukraine and in line with IAEA principles and under its supervision. Any threat or use of nuclear weapons in the context of the ongoing war against Ukraine is inadmissible," communicates the joint declaration to be signed by the participants of the Peace Summit.

European Pravda reports that even though this is still a formal project and not a final decision, the day before, it was said that the document would no longer be amended, according to the summit participants.
