The UN does not underestimate the difficulties standing in the way of extending the agreement on the export of agro-industrial products from Russia and Ukraine, but believes that they can be overcome. This statement was made on Saturday, October 29, by the official representative of the Secretary General of the world organization Stephane Dujarric.

Dujarric recalled that the term of the agreements under the “grain deal” is 120 days. At the same time, the agreement can be automatically extended on November 19, if the parties have no objections, informs TASS.

The UN calls on all parties to make every possible effort to extend the agreements and implement them in full, including to help remove the remaining obstacles to the export of grain and fertilizers from Russia.

Moscow has repeatedly noted earlier that part of the agreements within the framework of the “grain deal”, which concerns the export of Russian agricultural products and fertilizers, is not being implemented. This calls into question the extension of the agreement, which will expire in November.

The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that a large concentration of ships was artificially created in the port of Istanbul in order to put pressure on Russian experts, seeking to ease the control and accelerate the verification of goods. The agency noted that during the implementation of the “Black Sea Initiative” more than 70 ships were detained, and some were even removed for systematic violations.
