The Ukrainian agricultural exports through the Black Sea have been extended for 60 days, Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko confirms on Tuesday.
Grushko said; "Indeed, the deal has been extended – it has been agreed that it has been extended for 60 days."
Russia on Monday suggested renewing the deal for 60 days. But it has now been confirmed by Grushko.
Grushko also said Russia was counting on lifting restrictions on its fertilizers under the pact.
Last July, the Black Sea grain initiative was brokered between Russia and Ukraine by Turkey and the United Nations.
It aimed to prevent a global food crisis by allowing Ukrainian grain blocked by Russia's invasion to be safely exported from three Ukrainian ports.
Meanwhile, Ukraine will also stick to the terms of the previously signed agreement on a 120-day extension of the initiative.
