Ukraine is working to extend the agreement on the establishment of the humanitarian maritime corridor that allows ships to export grain and other foodstuffs from the country, and it is already raising the issue of broadening the range of the goods that can be exported from Ukrainian seaports under the agreement in the future.

Ukraine’s Ambassador to Turkey Vasyl Bodnar announced this in a statement, the CFTS portal reports, citing the Ukrinform news agency.

According to the diplomat, the "grain corridor" is generally working well and an average of 8 to 13 ships loaded with Ukrainian agricultural products leave Ukrainian seaports per day despite certain technical difficulties, which arise mostly because of Russia's attempts to slow down the inspection of ships.

"It is beneficial for us, it is important, and we must continue on this track. I hope we will soon negotiate with the Turkish side on the details of the extension of this mandate and improvement of the work of the Joint Coordination Center. In addition, we are already raising the issue of the possibility of broadening the range of the goods that are exported from Ukraine in the future. Of course, this is in the future, but it is on the agenda," Bodnar said.
