Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke by telephone with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan. This was reported to the Kremlin.
As noted, the President of Turkey gave a positive assessment of Moscow’s decision to accept the extension of the Istanbul grain agreements.
It was added that Ankara understands Russia’s intention in principle to ensure that the second part of the terms of the agreement is fully implemented. The fact is that barriers to Russian agricultural products must be removed.
Earlier it became known that the Russian side agreed to extend the grain agreement again, but only for 60 days. The Russian leader’s press secretary, Dmitry Peskov, called it a “goodwill gesture”.
The Russian Federation hopes that the other parties to the agreements will fulfill their obligations, the Kremlin spokesman stressed.
