(MENAFN- UkrinForm) The Ukrainian side insists that the grain agreement be open-ended and automatically extended for a period of 120 days.
The relevant statement was made by Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal at a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine on March 17, 2023, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
“Ukraine is one of the key links in the global food security. That is why we insist that the grain agreement be open-ended and automatically extended for 120 days. Türkiye and the UN share the same position,” Shmyhal noted.
