Ankara continues to come forward to all parties with initiatives aimed at solving problems in the implementation of the “grain deal”. This was announced on Tuesday, November 1, by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan during telephone conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

According to TASS, which refers to the Office of the President of Turkey, Erdogan also expressed confidence that the difficulties around the deal will be overcome.

“President Erdogan expressed confidence that if solution-oriented cooperation is established on this issue, as in many other issues, the grain crisis will be resolved with a constructive approach,” the statement said.

It is noted that in this case, steps taken to return to Russian-Ukrainian negotiations will be encouraged.

After the terrorist attack in the waters of the Sevastopol Bay from Kyiv, Moscow was forced to suspend its participation in the deal on the export of Ukrainian grain, but it will continue the dialogue with Turkey and the UN on the agreements signed in Istanbul, stated earlier prime minister of the Russian Federation. Sources said that Turkey, in coordination with the UN started contacts with Russia after Moscow’s decision to suspend participation in the deal.
