Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that it is very important to export Russian grain and fertilizer without problems or obstacles, along with Ukrainian grain and fertilizer.
This happened during his meeting with Romanian Foreign Minister Bogdan Aurescu today, Tuesday, where Cavusoglu said that this is a condition for the implementation of the grain export agreement to continue without problems or interruptions, since “grain and fertilizer exports from Russia are an integral part of the agreement on the export of Russian grain and fertilizers. In this context, the first Russian batch of ammonia was exported from the port of Rotterdam.
The Minister pointed out that intensive work is being done with the United Nations to make progress in this matter, and there is important support for Turkey’s efforts from some countries, such as the United States of America, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Estonia, Lithuania and the European Union as a whole.
Regarding the Ukrainian crisis, Mevlut Cavusoglu expressed hope that the Ukrainian crisis will end as soon as possible, but it is clear, as he put it, that he is going through great complications and difficulties, “and it is clear that these complications and difficulties will increase significantly in the coming period.”
Cavusoglu added that it is important to continue the flow of humanitarian aid to Ukraine, as well as to continue the implementation of the agreement on the export of grain to world markets.
It is noteworthy that about 9 million tons of grain and food were exported from Ukraine through Romania to world markets.
