Ukraine and Poland have agreed to find a solution to the export of Ukrainian agricultural products that takes into account the interests of both countries.
This is reported with reference to the statement of the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine.
It is reported that Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine Mykola Solsky had a telephone conversation with his Polish counterpart Robert Telus today.
The ministers discussed the situation and Ukraine's proposal to resolve it, and agreed to find a solution that takes into account the interests of both countries.
The parties reaffirmed the close and constructive relations they have repeatedly demonstrated and agreed to work out a way forward on export cooperation in the near future.
As a reminder, on September 15, the European Commission lifted the ban on imports of Ukrainian grain to Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, Bulgaria, and Romania. However, Poland, Hungary, and Slovakia imposed the ban at the national level.
In response, Ukraine filed lawsuits against Poland, Slovakia, and Hungary with the World Trade Organization over the grain import ban.
Today, Polish Agriculture Minister Robert Telus said that Poland is ready to negotiate with Ukraine on the export of its agricultural products.
