Turkish president raises hopes over pact to allow exports via Black Sea, bringing relief to world’s poorest countries
A vital deal allowing Russian and Ukrainian wheat and fertilisers to be exported through the Black Sea is expected to continue, according to the Turkish president, bringing relief to some of the poorest countries in the world.
“I am of the opinion that it will continue. There’s no problem there,” Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who mediated the agreement, told a press conference at the G20 summit in Bali, Indonesia. The deal was scheduled to expire on Saturday.
