Turkey announced that it will host delegations from Russia and Ukraine, along with UN diplomats, today, Wednesday to discuss resuming the delivery of suspended grain shipments through the Black Sea.

The quadripartite meeting, in which Turkish officials are participating, comes at a time when food prices are rising around the world due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, according to what was reported by Agence France-Presse  (AFP).

Ukraine is among the world's leading exporters of wheat and other grains. But Russian warships and the mines that Kyiv has planted across the Black Sea have halted its exports.

Turkey, a member of NATO, is leading efforts to resume grain shipments.

On Tuesday, Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar announced the meeting, but without specifying who would represent each party.

The Turkish minister said that military delegations from the Turkish, Russian, and Ukrainian defense ministries and experts of the United Nations will hold talks today (Wednesday) in Istanbul regarding the safe delivery of grain shipments suspended in Ukrainian ports to international markets.
