Next two months 'crucial' now that grain deal extended, says Lavrov

Russia has approved the extension of the grain deal for another 60 days, knowing full well that this period will be crucial, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at a news conference following talks with his Ugandan counterpart Jeje Odongo on Thursday.

"During my visit to New York in late April, [UN chief] Antonio Guterres  came up with another proposal on how to have his own initiative  implemented. As part of that idea, he recommitted himself to ensuring the implementation of the memorandum between Russia and the United Nations," Lavrov said. "Given the circumstances and requests from our partners, we supported President [of Turkey Recep Tayyip] Erdogan’s initiative that he announced yesterday, to extend the deal for another two months, with a clear understanding that the next two months will be crucial," he added.

Russia’s top diplomat also assured reporters that the grain deal was unrelated to the political situation in Turkey.

  1. Если за два месяца не будут решены все проблемные вопросы по зерновой сделке - то договоренность будет прекращена после 17 июня. Такое заявление распространил российский МИД. Полный текст опубликован на официальном сайте внешнеполитического ведомства. Российские дипломаты напомнили о пяти проблемных вопросах, прогресс по которым отсутствует до сих пор.

    «Переподключение "Россельхозбанка" к SWIFT; поставки запчастей; разблокирование транспортной логистики и страхования; реанимирование аммиакопровода "Тольятти-Одесса" и "разморозка" активов российских компаний. Без выполнения этих требований <...> договоренность будет прекращена после 17 июля», - говорится в сообщении.
