The General Assembly supported the continuation of the grain corridor

The UN is considering the possibility of extending and expanding the “grain corridor”. This became known during a meeting of the UN General Assembly, which took place on October 10. Recall that the agreement, which was concluded for 120 days with the mediation of the UN, on the possibility of exporting Ukrainian grain, expires at the end of November.

It is reported by “ProAgro Group” with reference to the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine.

The President of the UN Assembly Chaba Kyoshi praised the work of the “grain deal”, through which about 6 million tons of grain were exported. During his speech, he stated: “We will work together to ensure the full delivery of vital food supplies from Ukrainian ports.”

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and his team are working to extend the grain initiative for another year. “The Secretary-General and his team are engaged in intensive negotiations on these issues. Mr. Guterres and the team are working hard on an expanded Black Sea Grain Initiative,” said UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric.

UN Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Martin Griffiths tweeted that the world cannot wait. “The opening of the Black Sea route is our best choice to overcome global hunger,” he said.

The issue of extending the Grain Corridor is also raised by the European Business Association. It appealed to the UN and Turkey to extend the “grain agreement” and include Mykolaiv port hub in the list of ports.

As of October 10, 309 vessels with a cargo of 6.9 million tons of grain and processed products have left Odesa ports since the start of the Corridor. The share of Asia, Africa, the Middle East and other non-EU countries is 52% of the volume of all goods shipped by Ukraine during the operation of the Corridor. The share of wheat from these regions is 66%.
