Turkish presidential spokesman discusses Ukraine grain exportation

by News Update

A joint co-ordination centre to monitor grain exports from Ukraine opened in Istanbul on Wednesday.
It’s part of a deal Kyiv and Moscow signed last week, which was brokered by Turkey and the United Nations.
Turkey’s defence minister says it’s an example of the international cooperation needed to tackle global food shortages.
The defence minister says arrangements were being made for the first ship to leave a Ukrainian port in the coming days.
The Ukrainian government says it wants to resume exports this week, for the first time since the Russian invasion began in February.
Ibrahim Kalin, a spokesman and special adviser to the Turkish president, talks to Al Jazeera.

My condolences to consumers around the world who are victims of food shortages and soaring prices as the result of Putin's🇷🇺 unprovoked Ukraine invasion and
– Xi Jinping's🇨🇳 reckless hoarding of global food supply.

Chinese 🇨🇳 reckless hoarding of global food supply is the direct result of food shortage and rising prices around the world. Few examples:
– Chinese rice import from Vietnam suddenly increased 8 fold this year from the last.
– China grabbed half of this year's world grain stock into its stockpile.
– 40% of Ukraine grain export went straight to China instead of the Middle East or Africa as usual.
The hoarding has caused the already-hardship into unbearable living for billions of people around the world, by the Chinese regime.

Wow that academic was laying on the pro-Erdogan sycophancy a bit thick. I agree with most of what he just said, but……he was basically prostrating himself.
I completely agree with him in that having these types of agreements can lay the foundation for crisis resolution. Sideline communication can be incredibly important in diplomacy.

If one country disputes the passage of a grain vessel, they can pay to seize it and search it. Market value. Crew goes home on their dime. Easy.

Your comments about the grain being stuck at the port of Odessa since the military operation began is a lie. You don't have the balls to blame Russia directly. You only insinuate itr. That is probably due to the fact that you know that Russia is NOT TO BLAME FOR THAT. If Elensky wanted to ship the grain out he could appeal to his handlers and have them ship the grain out. There are many ways Ukraine can export their material. So don't lie.
