The Lebanese Buyer for the Ukrainian Grain off the Razoni Ship has Denied it - Now the ship is Anchored off the Southern Coast of Turkey
The initial buyer cited a near five-month delay on the grain for being the reasoning they've denied it...
The first ship to leave the Ukrainian Black Sea port near Odesa under the agreement between the U.N., Ukraine, and Russia has already experienced a delay in arrival to its designated Lebanese port. However, now that the ship has arrived, it is currently looking for another port to unload its grain as the initial buyer has refused the delivery with claims that in total, the grain has been going through a five-month delay.
"According to the information provided by the shipper of the Ukrainian grain aboard the Razoni, the buyer in Lebanon refused to accept the cargo due to delays in delivery terms.
So the shipper is now looking for another consignee to offload his cargo either in Lebanon/Tripoli or any other country/port."
The Ukrainian Embassy of Lebanon said.
The Razoni set sail to the sea last week with nearly 27,000 tons of corn. The grain was set to arrive in Lebanon yesterday but according to ship tracker data, the ship has changed its destination to the Mersin port in Turkey and currently sits off the southern coast of Turkey.
