Deputy Foreign Minister of Russia Sergei Vershinin said that Moscow intends to continue consultations with the UN on the implementation of the Russian part of the grain deal.
Vershinin added in a press statement today, Saturday, that Moscow considers the consultations held on Friday in Geneva positive, noting that another consultation session will take place before the end of this year.
The Deputy Foreign Minister of Russia said: “Yesterday we had another round of consultations with representatives of the United Nations… This is not the first meeting of its kind. We held consultations in Geneva and in Moscow. Yesterday’s consultations were lengthy, useful and detailed.”
According to Vershinin, the consultations discussed the implementation of the grain export agreements reached in Istanbul on July 22, with reference to the memorandum signed between Russia and the UN on ensuring the access of Russian food and fertilizers to the world market, which is also known as the grain deal, which allows exporting Ukrainian grain from three Ukrainian ports.
