The Secretary General of the United Nations Organization (UN), Antonio Guterres, celebrated on Thursday the renewal of the agreement on the export of Ukrainian cereals through the Black Sea.


UN calls for extension of initiative to export grains from Ukraine

"I welcome the agreement of all parties to continue the initiative in order to facilitate the safe navigation of the export of grain, food and fertilizer from Ukraine," Guterres said.

The agreement was confirmed by the Ukrainian president himself, Volodimir Zelesnki, on his Twitter account, announcing that it was extended for four months, which will allow new food shipments from at least three Ukrainian ports on the Black Sea.

For his part, the Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine, Oleksii Kubrako, stressed that this is an "important step in the fight against the world food crisis," he added.

The president of Türkiye, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, had assured from the G20 summit on the island of Bali, Indonesia that the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, had agreed to renew the agreement that facilitates the exit of Russian and Ukrainian cereals and fertilizers, signed in July and expired on the 19th.

The grain export agreement was signed in July and, although it was suspended by Russia in October following a Ukrainian attack on the Crimean peninsula, it was resumed shortly thereafter.

Given the proximity of ending the pact, the UN and Türkiye held meetings and negotiations with Russia and Ukraine to extend it.

Some 10 million tons of grain and other food from Ukraine and Russia have already been exported through the grain deal or the Black Sea Grain Initiative, according to UN data.
