During the call, President Erdoğan discussed the diplomatic traffic to open a corridor in the ports occupied by Russia for Ukraine to export grain, and stated that it was time to take action to open the grain corridor.
While the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has frequently warned that the Russia-Ukraine war, which has been going on since February 24, will lead to a food crisis, a road map has been prepared under the roof of the United Nations (UN) as a result of Turkey’s intensive diplomacy to solve the global food problem.
Turkey has been conducting diplomatic traffic for some time to create a mechanism to ensure that grain stocks in Ukraine reach global markets safely. According to diplomatic sources, Putin and Zelensky also look favorably on cooperation on the “grain corridor”.
