Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday, November 2, said that during a telephone conversation with Russian leader Vladimir Putin, the topic of entering agricultural products from the Russian Federation to the foreign market was discussed.

Erdogan noted that during the conversation on November 1, the parties agreed to transfer Russian agricultural products primarily to countries in need, informs RIA News.

It is expected that at the first stage, Somalia, Sudan, Djibouti should receive food and fertilizer from the Russian Federation, the President of Turkey specified.

The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said earlier that the part of the “grain deal”, which concerns the export of food and fertilizers from Russia, is still “implemented badly”. Russia will make a decision to prolong the agreement after the originally agreed period of its validity expires on November 19, taking into account all factors.

The UN called it vital export of agricultural products from Russia and called on all parties to the “grain deal” and other states to ensure the unhindered export of food and fertilizers from the Russian Federation.
