Ukraine Grain may get moving out of the Country with the help of Turkey
Turkey says Ukraine grain ships could avoid mines after Russia offers safe passages...
Turkey has suggested now that ships could be guided around sea mines as Russia offered “safe passage” for Ukrainian grain shipments coming from the ports of the Black Sea. However, Russia has stated it would not be responsible for establishing the corridors, and this is when Turkey came in.
The shipment of grain from Ukraine has been halted since the invasion. Prices of cooking oils, fuel, fertilizer, and grain have skyrocketed. The UN is currently working to broker a deal to get Ukrainian exports up and running. Surprisingly, they’re also working to get exports of Russian food and fertilizer going as well.
"We are not responsible for establishing safe corridors. We said we could provide safe passage if these corridors are established.
It's obvious it's either de-mine the territory, which was mined by the Ukrainians, or ensure that the passage goes around those mines."
Vassily Nebenzia, Russia U.N. Ambassador, said.
In response, Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu suggested it would take some time to de-mine the ports used by Ukraine for safe sea corridors.
"Since the location of the mines is known, certain safe lines would be established at three ports. could thus come and go safely to ports without a need to clear the mines,“ Cavusoglu said.
