Turkey to try to reach outcome on grain corridor with Russia, Ukraine soon

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday said he would reinvigorate talks with Russia and Ukraine to establish a corridor for the export of grain from Ukrainian ports.

"The corridor in the Black Sea is a very important issue, in which the approaches of [Presidents of Russia and Ukraine Vladimir] Putin and [Vladimir] Zelensky are very important. We continue our negotiations and we want this process to continue under the auspices of the UN as a mediator. We will intensify our negotiations and try to achieve a result within 7-10 days," the Turkish president said at a news conference in Ankara following talks with Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi.

Erdogan also said he believes "there is a serious shortage of grain in the world, which is especially acute in Africa."
