Details: The spokesperson said the State Department welcomed Türkiye's efforts to resume the grain deal, although Putin's talks with Erdogan did not result in a breakthrough.


Quote: "We welcome the efforts of Turkey and other countries to convince Russia to return to the deal. We are engaging with the United Nations and with Turkey, both of whom have worked very hard to make BSGI (Black Sea Grain Initiative) both possible and functional."

More details: The State Department thanked Türkiye for "its important diplomatic and operational efforts" to reach a new agreement.

The State Department spokesperson added that Russia's decision to end its participation in the initiative "hurts communities vulnerable to food insecurity around the world".
