Russia sent a signal to UN Secretary General António Guterres about the need to include a clause on Russian grain in the Istanbul agreements. This was announced by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in an interview with RT and RIA Novosti.
According to him, the parties managed to agree on the basic principles in accordance with which grain will be imported from Ukraine. However, when the Russian delegation proposed to designate the “second part of the package”, the Ukrainian delegation “categorically refused”, and the UN representatives were “shamefully silent”, Lavrov added.
“Yesterday we sent a signal to Mr. Secretary General [ UN] and they said, how is it, this is your initiative, no, let's decide now with the Ukrainian one, and then with the Russian one, — pointed out by the minister.
The meeting in Istanbul was held on July 13, it was attended by representatives of Russia, Ukraine, Turkey and the UN. Moscow handed over its proposals to resolve the situation with grain supplies. As stated in the Russian Ministry of Defense, the parties generally supported them.
The topic of grain exports was also touched upon at the talks between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Putin thanked him for mediating negotiations on the export of grain through the Black Sea. Erdogan called the Russian position on this issue “positive and constructive.”
The Russian president stressed that Moscow would facilitate the export of Ukrainian grain, but at the same time, all bans on the export of Russian grain should be lifted.
