STORYLINE
A United Nations spokesperson today (16 Aug) announced that at the invitation of President Volodymyr Zelinskyy of Ukraine, Secretary-General António Guterres will be in Lviv on Thursday to attend a trilateral meeting with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkïye and the Ukrainian leader.

Spokesperson Stéphane Dujarric said, “the Secretary-General will then go on to Odesa, where he will visit the port that is one of the three being used as part of the Black Sea Grain Initiative. Before returning to New York over the weekend, the Secretary-General will be in Istanbul to visit the Joint Coordination Centre set up to implement the initiative.”

The Black Sea Grain Initiative specifically allows for significant volumes of commercial food exports from three key Ukrainian ports in the Black Sea – Odessa, Chernomorsk and Yuzhny.

During the agreement signing ceremony in Istanbul, Türkiye, on 22 July, Guterres called the initiative “a beacon of hope” in a world that desperately needs it.
