On July 13, a 4-party meeting was held in Istanbul on unblocking Ukrainian ports and stopping the global food crisis.
"Today in the news, there are many references to the meeting in Turkey regarding the unblocking of agricultural exports from our country through the Black sea. We are indeed making significant efforts to restore food supply to the world market. And I am grateful to the United Nations and Turkey for their respective efforts. The success of this story is needed not only by our state but also, without exaggeration, by the whole world. If it is possible to remove the Russian threat to shipping in the Black Sea, it will remove the severity of the global food crisis. The Ukrainian delegation informed me that there is some progress. In the coming days, we will agree on the details with the UN secretary general," Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
During the meeting, it was decided to demine and unblock the Odesa, Black sea and Southern ports. Russia has demanded to check every vessel that will enter Ukrainian waters. Thus, Russia accused Ukraine of the fact that the ships will supply weapons to Ukraine. Russia's demand was rejected, and the vessel will be inspected by the Turkish Navy. An international coordination center will also be created.
How the export will take place: vessels filled with Ukrainian grain will be accompanied by Ukrainian ships. A ceasefire will be declared at this time.
However, it is too early to rejoice because Russia has not yet received the consent of its tyrant.
