The ‘Rojen’ transports a load of 13,000 tons of corn, while the ‘Polarnet’ transports 12,000 tons of this same grain. The Ministry of Defense has stressed that all of them will have to dock in Istanbul to undergo an inspection, as as contemplated in the agreement reached on July 22. The ships thus join the ‘Razoni’, with the Sierra Leonean flag, which left Odessa on August 1 with more than 26,000 tons of corn bound for Lebanon. Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu on Thursday stressed the importance of the deal being “sustainable”. “The duration of this agreement is four months,” he said, before stressing that the agreement could even be the basis for “a comprehensive ceasefire” before the end of the war.
