Nebenzya: extension of grain deal depends on meeting Moscow’s demands

Russia is ready to consider extending the grain initiative after 60 days, but will only do so if Moscow’s demands are met. Such a statement was made by Russia’s permanent representative to the UN Vasily Nebenzya on Saturday in a letter to the world organization’s deputy secretary-general Martin Griffiths and the secretary-general of the United Nations Conference on Trade. and Development (UNCTAD) Rebecca Greenspan.

“Consideration of a further extension of the Black Sea Grains Initiative will only be possible subject to the achievement of tangible progress in the implementation of the Memorandum of Understanding between Russia and the Secretariat of UN to help promote Russian food and fertilizer products on world markets,” the diplomat said in a letter, a copy of which was available to RIA News.

The Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the UN also recalled once again the conditions set by Moscow. We are talking about connecting Rosselkhozbank to the SWIFT system, resuming deliveries of foreign agricultural equipment to the Russian Federation and lifting restrictive measures for Russian cargo ships. In addition, Moscow is counting on the resumption of operation of the Togliatti-Odessa ammonia pipeline, as well as the resumption of the activities of enterprises of the Russian Federation that produce fertilizers.

Earlier, Nebenzya said the West had two months to lift sanctions on Russian agricultural exports.
