Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has announced that the Black Sea Grain Corridor has been extended for two months.
Erdogan made the announcement in a speech at his party's headquarters on 17 May.
"Through the efforts of our country, the support of our Russian friends and the contributions of our Ukrainian friends, it was decided to extend the Black Sea Grain Corridor Agreement for another two months," Erdogan said in a tweet.
The Turkish president added that Russia had promised not to prevent Turkish ships from leaving the Ukrainian ports of Mykolayiv and Olbia. Previously, grain was exported only from the ports of Odesa Region. Ukraine offered to open Mykolayiv ports as well.
The agreement will be in effect until 18 July.
