The Black Sea Grain Initiative, which established a humanitarian maritime corridor to allow ships to export grain and other foodstuffs from Ukraine, has resumed operation as a result of Turkey’s efforts.
The Turkish state TV channel, TRT Haber, reported this, citing sources in the Turkish Ministry of National Defense, the CFTS portal reports.
"As a result of an initiative by Turkey, vessel inspections have resumed and the grain corridor has become operational again," the TV channel said.
In addition, according to the TV channel, the Turkish Ministry of Defense said that bilateral and multilateral meetings would be held in Istanbul with the participation of Ukraine, the United Nations, and the Russian Federation on 10-11 May.
The talks will focus on the continuation of the safe and efficient operation of the grain corridor, which is vital for global food supplies and security, as well as for preventing harm to countries in need by ensuring food-price stability.
In addition, the issue of creating a detailed and safe evacuation plan for merchant ships and crews that are stuck in Ukrainian ports because of the conflict will be discussed.
