UN head will encounter presidents of Turkey, Ukraine in Lviv

(MENAFN) On Tuesday, United Nation Secretary-General Antonio Guterres announced that he is going to meet with the presidents of Turkey and Ukraine on August 18 in Lviv, Ukraine.

On August 20, after holding talks with Volodymyr Zelenskyy of Ukraine and Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey, Guterres would also go to Istanbul to the Joint Coordination Center (JCC), which was established as part of a historic agreement to supervise the Ukraine grain deal.

On July 22, a deal was made in Istanbul by Turkey, the United Nation, Russia, and Ukraine to reopen three Ukrainian Black Sea ports so that Ukrainian grain that had become stranded due to the now six-month-old Russia and Ukraine conflict could be exported.

The JCC in Istanbul, which consists of officials from the three nations and the United Nation to monitor the procedure, was formally established on July 27 to permit the secure transfer of commercial goods and fertilizers by merchant ships, moreover, a total of 21 ships carrying grain and wheat have thus far sailed from Ukrainian ports since the agreement's first departure on August 1.
