ANKARA (Sputnik) – The United Nations and Turkey have found ways to bring Russian agribusiness to the global market, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu announced on Saturday.
“We have been working with the UN in our coordination center in Istanbul… We have identified a number of options. The work is ongoing,” he told the Turkish Diaspora in Los Angeles.
Turkey and the UN helped broker a grain export pact between Russia and Ukraine in July, which also aims to facilitate Russian food and fertilizer exports.
The UN has called the deal key to tackling world hunger, but Russia insists Western sanctions are hampering the sale of Russian agri-food products.
