According to the Istanbul grain export agreement, eight more ships have departed Ukrainian ports, the Turkish National Defense Ministry reported on Wednesday.
The ships’ origins and destinations were not stated in a ministry statement.
On July 22, an agreement was signed in Istanbul by Turkey, the UN, Russia, and Ukraine to resume grain exports from three Ukrainian Black Sea ports that had been suspended since the start of the Russia-Ukraine war in February.
To manage the shipments, a Joint Coordination Center in Istanbul has been established with representatives from the three nations and the UN.
More than 160 ships have transported over 3 million tonnes of agricultural products through the grain corridor since the first ship sailed under the agreement on August 1.
