From Odessa, U.N. Chief Calls for More Ukrainian Food and Fertilizer Shipments

HeadlineAug 22, 2022

U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres visited the port city of Odessa on Friday. He called on world leaders to help bring Russian, as well as Ukrainian, food and fertilizer to the global market.

Secretary-General António Guterres: “Other parts that are also important and we have been defending relate to the unimpeded access to the global markets of Russian food and fertilizers, which are not subject to sanctions. It is important that all governments and the private sector cooperate to bring them to market. Without fertilizers in 2022, there may not be enough food in 2023. I am deeply committed to those objectives, but it will only happen if all parties cooperate. And I am here in Odessa to salute the work being done and to urge that those efforts continue.”
