However, the Ministry´s statement did not disclose the ships’ departure points or destinations.
Türkiye, the UN, Russia and Ukraine signed an agreement in Istanbul on July 22 to resume grain exports from three Ukrainian Black Sea ports, which were halted after the start of the Russian special military operation in Ukraine in February.
A Joint Coordination Center was set up in Istanbul with officials from the three countries and the UN to oversee the shipments.
Since the first ship sailed under the agreement on August 1, more than 120 ships have transported over 2 million 5 thousand tons of agricultural products through the grain corridor.
However, speaking at a plenary meeting of the Eastern Economic Forum last Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin noted that almost all of the grain exported from Ukraine went to European Union countries, not to poorer nations, where only two ships out of 87 were sent.
