If Russia complies with its obligations to ensure the “grain corridor”, Ukraine will continue to guarantee the stability of food exports to the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
This was stated by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dmytro Kuleba, commenting on the arrival of the Polarnet dry cargo at the Turkish port of Deringe, reports Ukrinform with reference to press service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
“The arrival of the first ship with Ukrainian grain to the Turkish port is a signal of hope for every family in the Middle East, Africa and Asia: Ukraine will not leave you. We have always been, are and will be a reliable supplier of agricultural products. Unlike Russia, we do not play the “Hunger Games”, – noted the head of Ukrainian diplomacy.
Kuleba emphasized that full responsibility for the further functioning “grain corridor” lies in Russia.
“If it complies with its obligations, Ukrainian food exports will continue to guarantee stability for our Middle Eastern, African and Asian friends,” the head of the Foreign Ministry assured.
