Turkey says talks continue on extending Black Sea grains deal

ANKARA, March 14 (Reuters)The Turkish Defense Ministry said on Tuesday that talks on extending an agreement allowing the export of Ukrainian grain to the Black Sea were continuing.

In a statement, the ministry quoted Russia as agreeing to back a 60-day extension of the deal, brokered between Moscow and Kyiv in July by Turkey and the United Nations.

Russia said the deal was extended for 60 days, but Ukraine said the deal only allowed for a 120-day extension.
