Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba and U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken have agreed to work closely to ensure that Ukrainian food exports reach consumers in Africa and Asia.

Kuleba said this on Twitter, Ukrinform reports.

"Met U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken in Berlin. More weapons and other aid are on the way to Ukraine. We agreed to work closely together to ensure that Ukrainian food exports reach consumers in Africa and Asia. Grateful to Secretary Blinken and the U.S. for their leadership and unwavering support," Kuleba wrote.

Blinken is visiting Germany and France this week. The Secretary of State will take part in NATO and EU ministerial meetings to discuss the further response to the Russian war in Ukraine, as well as economic stability.

Due to Russia's blockade of Ukrainian seaports, 7 million tonnes of wheat, 14 million tonnes of corn, 3 million tonnes of sunflower oil and 3 million tonnes of sunflower meal and other crops did not get to the world market.
