Turkey: 12 grain ships depart from the ports of Ukraine


The Turkish Ministry of Defense announced the departure of 12 cargo ships loaded with grain from Ukrainian ports on Sunday morning.


In a statement, the ministry indicated that grain shipments from Ukraine continued under the supervision of the Joint Coordination Center, which was established within the framework of the Istanbul Agreement.

She said 12 other ships loaded with grain left Ukrainian ports this morning.

Last July 22, Istanbul witnessed the signing ceremony of the “Document on the Safe Shipping Initiative for Grain and Foodstuffs from Ukrainian Ports” between Turkey, Russia, Ukraine and the United Nations.


The agreement guarantees securing exports of grain stuck in the Ukrainian ports on the Black Sea (Eastern Europe) to the world.
