The UN intends to arrange for more grain-laden ships to be sent to Africa.
“Report” informs that Farhan Haq, Deputy Press Secretary of the UN Secretary General, who answered TASS’s question at the briefing, said this while commenting on the fact that so far only one ship has left Ukrainian ports for Africa.
According to him, the movement of ships with food cargoes to and from Ukrainian ports contributes to mitigating the food crisis:
“We are trying to send more food to Africa. As you know, the “Brave Commander” ship leased by the UN World Food Program has already gone there. The shipping itself reduces pressure on prices. “Even if the ships don’t go to Africa, their movement helps lower global food prices and helps the whole world.”
