Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy made a passionate plea at Asia's premier security conference on Sunday, urging top defense officials to commit to an upcoming summit aimed at ending the Russian war on Ukraine.

Addressing over 500 delegates from around 40 countries, Zelenskyy expressed his dissatisfaction over the lack of confirmed attendance from certain world leaders for the conference scheduled in Switzerland in two weeks. The participation of China, Russia's key ally, has been a focal point of concern.

Earlier in the day, Chinese Defence Minister Dong Jun spoke at the Shangri-La conference, though he was notably absent when Zelenskyy made his appeal.
