According to him, given the special role that Switzerland plays in the world, in this case, its authority as a neutral country may be in question. In this regard, Switzerland, its president noted, should not change the fundamental principles of its state structure in the event of re-exporting weapons to Ukraine. And this scenario, he added, is not worth Switzerland “changing its neutrality.”
Meanwhile, the president of the Swiss Confederation has been facing suspicions of indiscretion in his department for several days. Peter Lauener, his former head of communication, according to the Schweiz am Wochenende newspaper, passed confidential information to the Ringier publishing house several times about the measures taken by the Federal Council during the COVID-19 pandemic.
