“Today, the Joint Coordination Center in Istanbul is the only platform where representatives of the Russian Federation and Ukraine are together. The trust shown by the parties to Turkey is a matter of pride for our country,” Akar added.

Thanking the Russian Federation for making it possible.

A separate United Nations agreement with Russia will get those goods to the world market which will help in curbing world hunger which could lead to further migration if not tackled.
