Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Istanbul on Friday announced his suggestion to discuss the issue of Russia-Ukraine conflict, as well as the details of the grain deal during the upcoming G20 Summit.
“What we will do in the world, especially at the G20 Summit, with this war between Russia and Ukraine. Are we going to send this grain fertiliser to developed countries or are we going to send it to underdeveloped, poor countries? Let’s take a step there for that. Let’s give this support to underdeveloped, poor poor countries. Because Mr. Putin said this in my meeting. He said let’s send this grain to these countries, Somalia, Sudan, free of charge. We agreed. Let’s discuss this widely at the G20,” Erdogan shared.
The 17th G20 Heads of State and Government Summit is planned to take place at November 15-16, 2022, in Bali. Leaders of Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkey, United Kingdom and United States with Presidents of European Commission and European Union are expected to join the event.
