Belarus has agreed to accept the transit of Ukrainian grain crops, intended to be exported via Lithuanian ports, through its territory.
The relevant statement was made by Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesperson for the Secretary-General of the United Nations, on Friday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
According to the readout, UN Secretary-General António Guterres met with Belarusian Foreign Affairs Deputy Minister Yury Ambrazevich.
The Belarusian diplomat informed Guterres that Belarus will accept, without preconditions, “the transit of Ukrainian grains through its own territory for export from Lithuanian harbors”.
Additionally, Ambrazevich reiterated the requests from the Belarusian government to allow for fertilizer exports from Belarus, which are currently subject to sanctions.
Meanwhile, it is unknown if the parties touched on the involvement of Belarus in Putin’s war against Ukraine.
I wouldn’t trust the Belarus regime with building an outhouse, much less them not stealing grain in transit.
You got that right, I wouldn’t either.
