UN Secretary-General urged more effort to ensure the access to Ukrainian grain, while visiting Odesa
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said on Friday there was still much more to do to ensure full global access to Ukrainian food products and Russian food and fertilisers after a UN-brokered food export deal.
At a briefing in Ukraine’s Black Sea port of Odesa, Guterres said developing countries needed help to purchase such grain and called for unimpeded access to global markets for Russian food and fertilisers which are not subject to sanctions.
“It is time for massive and generous support so developing countries can purchase the food from this and other ports – and people can buy it,” he said.
