UN chief calls for renewal of Ukraine grain deal, progress at COP27

UNITED NATIONS, Nov 4 (NNN-Xinhua) — UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called for the renewal of the Ukraine grain deal, and for the application of the same spirit of multilateralism at the upcoming UN Climate Change Conference in Egypt, or COP27.

At a press encounter, Guterres called for the renewal of the Black Sea Grain Initiative as Russia has agreed to resume its participation.

“Now that the initiative has fully resumed, I appeal to all parties to concentrate efforts in two areas: first, to renewal and full implementation of the Black Sea Initiative; second, to removing the remaining obstacles to the exports of Russian food and fertilizer,” said Guterres.

“I am fully committed — along with the entire United Nations system — to the achievement of both these essential objectives,” he said.
