Kyiv: Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy arrived in Saudi Arabia on a working visit on Tuesday to meet Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, according to a statement posted on his Telegram account.

Zelenskyy wrote that the primary topics of discussion would be Kyiv's Peace Formula framework for ending Russia's invasion, as well as the return of captives and deported people.

The Saudi state news agency confirmed in a statement that Zelenskyy had arrived in the kingdom.

Ukraine has held several multilateral meetings to discuss the peace formula with representatives from dozens of countries.

Kyiv hopes to hold a Peace Summit in Switzerland involving the leaders of those nations this spring.

"Now we are very close to holding the first Peace Summit and we count on continued active support from Saudi Arabia," Zelenskyy wrote in his statement.
