[国連 7日 ロイター] – Senior United Nations and Russian officials met in Geneva on Thursday to discuss Russian claims that Western sanctions have blocked grain and fertilizer exports to Ukraine as it continues to invade Ukraine.

In July, Russia and Ukraine reached a UN-brokered deal with Turkey to resume Ukrainian grain and fertilizer exports and boost Russian exports. The United States and other countries have said these items are not subject to sanctions against Russia, but Russia has argued that the sanctions are a hindrance.

Secretary-General of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) Grinspan held ‘positive’ talks with Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Vershinin, according to UN Secretary-General’s spokesman Dujarik .

“Very constructive and professional discussions are taking place,” a spokesperson said, without elaborating.

Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov has called for the lifting of logistics and logistics sanctions that prevent the world from free access to Russian grain and fertilizers.

Talks are expected to begin soon to extend the initial 120-day period for Ukrainian exports via the Black Sea.
