China has confirmed it will not attend a Ukraine peace conference to be hosted by Switzerland next month, four sources with direct knowledge of the matter said.

Beijing declined the invitation because the conditions for them to participate were not met, three of the sources said.

The neutral Swiss government is seeking a broad-based turnout from different parts of the world for the summit on June 15-16, which Bern hopes will pave the way for a peace process in Ukraine. Moscow was not invited.
