“Obstacles remain, especially with regard to payment systems,” he said. The UN deputy secretary-general stressed that the “grains agreement” is extremely important for global food security, adding that the organization will continue its efforts to overcome these obstacles.

The coordination of vessel traffic is ensured by the Joint Coordination Center (JCC) of Istanbul. The agreement also included the removal of export restrictions on Russian fertilizers.
