Ukrainian, Chadian foreign ministers agree to jointly counter food crisis

Foreign Ministers Dmytro Kuleba of Ukraine and Cherif Mahamat Zene of Chad have agreed to work to counter the food crisis caused by Russia's blockade of Ukrainian seaports.

Kuleba said this on Twitter, Ukrinform reports.

"Spoke with my Chadian counterpart Cherif Mahamat Zene. We agreed to work together on countering the food crisis caused by Russia’s irresponsible blockade of Ukrainian ports. Ukraine works tirelessly to deliver its food exports to African markets via alternative routes," the diplomat said.

Due to the 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 did not enter the world market. This has already led to a record rise in world market prices and will inevitably result in a global food crisis and rising inflation.
