More than 90 countries and international organisations are attending the Ukraine peace summit in Switzerland, aimed at creating the broadest possible backing for a process that could help end the war in Ukraine. On Friday, Vladimir Putin claimed he would agree to a ceasefire if Ukraine withdrew troops from four regions which Russia partially occupies and claims to have annexed. Italy's Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni called the Russian president's plan "propaganda" which effectively suggested that Ukraine "must withdraw from Ukraine". Russia has not been invited, and its biggest backer China is not present, leading some to cast doubt on the summit's effectiveness.

The Princess of Wales says she is making “good progress” after her cancer diagnosis and is to attend the formal Trooping the Colour ceremony in London. It will be her first public appearance this year following the diagnosis, and her abdominal surgery in January. In a personal message, Catherine said her treatment was still ongoing and will continue for another few months. She said “I am not out of the woods yet. It’s the most significant update on Catherine's health since revealing in March she had cancer, in a statement written in her own words. It is accompanied by a new photograph of the princess, taken by photographer Matt Porteous, which shows her near her home in Windsor. But there is caution with the positive message. “As anyone going through chemotherapy will know, there are good days and bad days,” she says. "On those bad days you feel weak, tired and you have to give in to your body resting. But on the good days, when you feel stronger, you want to make the most of feeling well”. The princess says "I am learning how to be patient, especially with uncertainty. Taking each day as it comes, listening to my body, and allowing myself to take this much needed time to heal."

South Africa's main opposition party, the Democratic Alliance (DA), says it has agreed a deal with the governing African National Congress (ANC) to form a government of national unity. This comes after weeks of speculation about who the ANC would partner with after losing its parliamentary majority for the first time in 30 years, in last month's elections. It got 40% of the vote, while the DA came second with 22%. This paves the way for ANC leader Ramaphosa to remain president.

El-Fasher is the last major urban centre in Darfur that remains in the hands of Sudan's army. The security council has called for "an immediate halt to the fighting" and withdrawal of all troops from the city.

Tesla shareholders have backed a record-breaking pay package for boss Elon Musk and approved a plan to move the firm's legal headquarters to Texas. The package was blocked earlier this year by a judge in Delaware over concerns it was unfair to shareholders. The vote is a victory for the multi-billionaire, who had campaigned fiercely for the payout, which is worth up to $56bn (£43.9bn). Its exact amount depends on the Tesla share price. "Hot damn, I love you guys," he told a crowd of enthusiastic shareholders who had gathered in Texas for the firm's annual meeting. But the vote is not binding and legal experts have said it is not clear if the court that blocked the deal will accept the re-vote and allow the company to restore the pay package.

Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky and President Biden have signed a 10-year bilateral security deal between Ukraine and the US, hailed by Kyiv as "historic". The agreement proposes US military and training aid to Ukraine - but it does not commit Washington to send troops to fight for its ally. US President Joe Biden said it was another reminder to Russia "that we're not backing down”. However Moscow has threatened what it called “extremely painful" retaliatory measures. G7 leaders meeting in Italy also agreed to use frozen Russian assets to raise $50bn (£39bn) for Ukraine to help it fight invading Russian forces. The money is not expected to arrive until the end of 2024 but is seen as a longer-term solution to support Ukraine's war effort and economy. Some $325bn worth of assets were frozen by the G7, alongside the EU, following Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine in 2022. The pot of assets is generating about $3bn a year in interest. Under the G7 plan that money will be used to pay off the annual interest on the $50bn loan for the Ukrainians, taken out on the international markets.
