Turkey’s Erdogan discusses possible grain corridor expansion

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan discussed ways to expand an agreement to safeguard global grain shipments with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, according to a statement from Turkey’s presidency. 

Erdogan in a phone call said different commodities and food products can be included in the grain corridor. Erdogan helped broker the original agreement to ensure continued flows of grain and vegetable oil from Ukraine in the midst of the war. 

The leaders also discussed bilateral ties and regional issues including the fight against terrorism. Erdogan urged Putin to uphold pledges to push separatist Kurdish militants in Syria, viewed as a mortal threat by Turkey, about 30 kilometers away from the Turkish border.

Separately, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said he “continued dialogue” with Erdogan, according to a post on his Twitter feed on Sunday afternoon. The two discussed “further work & possible expansion of grain corridor,” according to the tweet.
