Minister Akar: “6 Ships Departed From Ukraine”
National Defense Minister Hulusi Akar said 6 ships had left Ukrainian ports after the grain deal resumed.
“After the resumption of the grain agreement, 6 ships left Ukrainian ports. Thus, the number of ships that left ports was 426, and the amount of grain transported exceeded 9.7 million tons.”
Stating that the resumption of the grain corridor is important in terms of paving the way for peace between Russia and Ukraine, Akar stated:
“We are now going to intensify our efforts to extend the grain initiative, which will expire on November 19, within the framework established by the President. The grain initiative is not just a shipment of grain, but also a good example that parties can solve some problems through negotiations.
With the use of this model, it is our most sincere wish that the path to ceasefire and peace will be opened in the coming days and that this conflict between the two countries, which are our neighbors in the Black Sea, will end through peaceful”.
The grain agreement, coordinated by Türkiye to resolve the world food crisis, was signed in Istanbul on 22 July under the auspices of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan between Ukraine, Russia, Türkiye and the United Nations.
Russia announced on October 29 that it had suspended the agreement for the exit of cereal products from Ukraine.
The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs accused Ukraine of using the humanitarian corridor created for the export of cereals to organize air and naval attacks with drones, against ships and infrastructure of the Russian fleet in the Black Sea, at the naval base in Sevastopol.
President Erdogan announced yesterday that the cereal aisle had been reactivated.
In a statement made by the Russian Defense Ministry, it was announced that “Moscow considers the guarantees it has received sufficient and that the Russian leadership will continue its participation in the cereals agreement”.
