The Ministers of Agriculture of Slovakia and Ukraine have agreed to establish a grain trade licensing system that will allow the ban on imports to Slovakia to be lifted after the system is established.
This was reported by Reuters.
According to the Ministry of Agriculture of Slovakia, the ministers agreed to create a grain trade system based on the issuance and control of licenses.
"Until this system is up and running and fully tested, the ban on imports of four commodities from Ukraine remains in place," the statement said.
Ukraine also agreed not to file a lawsuit with the WTO, the Slovak ministry said.
The Slovak Ministry did not specify how the licensing system will work.
