A total of 33 grain ships have so far left Ukraine’s Black Sea ports under the multinational deal brokered by the UN last month, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Tuesday.

The Minister also noted that the agreement between Russia, Ukraine, Turkey and the UN is being complied with smoothly and everything is going well.

Grain exports from Ukraine, a major global supplier, were halted in late February after Russia launched its military operation in the country. The two sides traded blame for the disruption to shipments.
