On July 13, a quadripartite meeting was held in Istanbul to solve the problem of the blockade of the Black sea and the export of grain from Ukraine

Today there was a meeting of representatives of 4 parties: Ukraine-UN-Turkey and Russia. The task of the delegation was to make every effort to reach agreements on the safe export of grain.

Andrii Yermak, head of the office of the president of Ukraine, shared the details and results of the negotiations.

According to Yermak, a joint coordination center will be created under the auspices of the UN, which will regulate the safe logistics of ships in the Black sea.
