On May 11, hearings will be held with the participation of experts, where representatives aim to clarify issues related to the policy of neutrality.

The Security Policy Committee of Switzerland’s Council of States (upper house of parliament) has suspended consideration of all issues related to the re-export of arms, according to the parliament’s website.

On May 11, hearings with the participation of experts will be held, where representatives will clarify issues related to the resolution of the UN General Assembly. Unity for Peace (This method allows you to bypass the veto of any of the permanent members of the Security Council – ed.), the policy of neutrality, as well as public international law.

In 1815, Switzerland received the status of permanent neutrality. Under the law, a country has no right to directly or indirectly send weapons to countries participating in the conflict.

Recall that earlier the upper house of the Swiss Parliament rejected the petition, which provided for the provision of Swiss-made weapons to Ukraine.

The President of Switzerland supported the refusal to provide weapons to Ukraine, saying that Swiss weapons should not be used in wars.

Ukrainian diplomats and diaspora want to cooperate with Swiss authorities to unlock the possibility of handing over Swiss weapons.
