Canada will help Ukraine to develop options on how to export grain to maintain global food security.
This was stated by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, reports “ProAgro Group,” citing Reuters.
“We know that people around the world will go hungry because of Russia’s actions. We have to make sure that Russia does not prevent the grain that the world needs from coming out,” Trudeau told the agency.
Transportation through Danube River ports could be part of the solution, Trudeau said, without revealing details, but added that a number of options are being considered.
“We’re just trying to solve a very pressing problem,” the Canadian prime minister stressed.
Also last night, President Volodymyr Zelensky announced that Canada has decided to lift all barriers to trade with Ukraine for one year. The relevant decision was made at talks with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in Kyiv on March 8.
