Ukraine has reached an agreement with Turkey and the UN to extend the grain deal for another 120 days.
The Grain Initiative Agreement has been extended for another four months. This was announced on Saturday, March 18, by the Deputy Prime Minister for the Reconstruction of Ukraine – Minister for the Development of Communities, Territory and Infrastructure Oleksandr Kubrakov.
“I thank United Nations Secretary General António Guterres and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, as well as all partner countries for their joint efforts to extend the document (grain deal – ed.) for another four months,” he wrote on Facebook.
According to Kubrakov, this means that Ukraine continues to export its agricultural products through three deep sea ports.
From August 1, 2022 to the present, 25 million tons of agricultural products have been sent to the needs of the world.
“At the same time, the main challenge is to speed up inspections in Turkey. This will allow the world to get more Ukrainian agricultural products. We also continue to work on joining the grain initiative of the ports of the Nikolaev region and expanding of the range of goods,” added the minister.
It will be recalled that last week in Kyiv, President Volodymyr Zelensky and UN Secretary General António Guterres supported the extension of the grain deal.
