The world community must solve the problem with the access of
Russian fertilizers to the markets, otherwise the world will face
food shortages next year, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres
told a news conference in connection with the start of the 77th
session of the UN General Assembly, Trend reports citing TASS .
'If we don't normalize the fertilizer markets, we will have a
problem of food in 2023,' the secretary-general stressed. 'We are
doing everything to make it happen in reality to get Russian food
and fertilizers to global markets,' Guterres stressed.
The Financial Times reported on Tuesday referring to the sources
briefed on the talks that UN diplomats held discussions with Kiev
and Moscow to reopen the Togliatti-Odessa pipeline carrying
ammonia. On February 24, the Togliattiazot fertilizer producer
suspended the transit of ammonia via the pipeline over the
situation in Ukraine.
Earlier, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov accused the West
of failing to comply with its commitments to implement the part of
the memorandum of the Russian Federation with the UN on the access
of Russian grain and fertilizers to global markets.
