Kremlin Spokesperson Peskov said, “We hope that the part concerning Russia in the grain agreement will be implemented.”
Kremlin Spokesperson Dmitriy Peskov said that they hope to implement the part concerning Russia in the Grain Corridor Agreement, which will expire on March 18.
Peskov made statements to journalists on current issues in the capital Moscow.
Pointing to the extension of the Grain Corridor Agreement signed in Istanbul on July 22, between Turkey, Ukraine, Russia and the United Nations (UN), Peskov said, “Contacts on this issue continue. Everyone agrees that the second part of the agreement (the shipment of Russian agricultural products and fertilizers) should be implemented. “We still hope that the second part will be implemented in line with the goodwill of the Russian side,” he said.
Peskov emphasized that they value the UN’s initiatives on this issue, but that UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres could not resist the obstacles created by the West within the scope of the agreement, adding, “The agreement cannot stand on one leg. In general, the extension conditions are relative.”
‘WE DON’T KNOW THE COURT IN THE HAGUE’
Referring to the news that the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netherlands, will file a lawsuit against Russia’s crimes in Ukraine, Peskov emphasized that they do not recognize this court. Peskov stated that for many years, international courts have turned a blind eye to the events in Donbas.
Drawing attention to the negotiations between Russia and Ukraine, Peskov said, “All the demands of Moscow are well known. The actual situation and the new facts are also well known. “The transition to a peaceful path is impossible without considering these complex issues,” he said.
Referring to the shipment of nuclear-powered submarines to Australia within the scope of the AUKUS alliance established by the USA, England and Australia, Peskov said, “There are many question marks here about the issue of non-proliferation of nuclear weapons. Of course, transparency is needed here. Questions need to be answered,” he said. (AA)
