Now, on the website of the federal department of Switzerland, these two countries are not in the list of signatories.

Both countries have not yet commented on the situation. Both Jordan and Iraq were full participants at the Summit, not observers.

On June 13, the Minister of Foreign Affairs Dmytro Kuleba had a telephone conversation with the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates of Jordan Ayman Safadi. They discussed the peace formula and the country was invited to take part in its implementation.

On Saturday, during the Summit, Kuleba met with the Deputy Prime Minister, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Iraq Fuad Hussein. The top Ukrainian diplomat wrote that the parties agreed: "The summit is the first step on the way to achieving a just peace in Ukraine based on the principles of the UN Charter."

Armenia, Bahrain, Colombia, Qatar, India, Indonesia, Libya, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Thailand, United Arab Emirates also did not sign the communiqué. Brazil and the Vatican did not sign either, but they were observers at the event.

Later, the full text of the communiqué appeared: on nuclear and food security, release of prisoners. The text also talks about "engagement and dialogue between all parties" to achieve peace.

India said it did not associate itself with any communiqué or document emerging from the summit, asserting "only those options acceptable to both parties can lead to abiding peace".
