Ukraine will continue to export grain
The organization noted that the initiative, which has been in effect since June last year, has been extended, however, they did not indicate for how long.
The United Nations has confirmed the extension of the grain deal, which ended on Saturday, March 18. This is stated in the message of the press service of the UN.
At the same time, the organization did not specify for how long the “grain agreement” was extended.
“The Black Sea Grain Initiative, signed in Istanbul on July 22, 2022, has been extended. The initiative makes it possible to facilitate safe shipping for the export of grain and related food products and fertilizers, including ammonia, from certain Ukrainian seaports,” the UN said.
They recalled that since the beginning of the agreement, about 25 million tons of agricultural products have been delivered to 45 countries of the world, which contributed to the reduction of world food prices and the stabilization of markets.
Continuation of the deal commented US Ambassador to Ukraine Bridget Brink. According to her, the agreement has been extended for 120 days.
“As part of the Black Sea Grain Initiative, more than 24 million tons of food have been exported since August. We are pleased to see that this vital initiative has been extended for another 120 days so that Ukrainian grain continues to reach consumers around the world,” Brink said in a statement.
Recall, on Saturday, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine reported that Ukraine had reached an agreement with Turkey and the UN to extend the grain deal for another 120 days. At the same time, Russia claims that it extended the grain deal only for 60 days, not 120. This was stated in the Russian Foreign Ministry.
