Turkey expects a daily shipload of grain to leave Ukrainian Black Sea ports as long as the “secure corridors” deal remains in place.

These corridors will allow the movement of cargo ships in the Black Sea, a high-ranking Turkish official said on Tuesday, Reuters reports.

These statements come a day after the cargo ship Razoni, loaded with 26,527 tons of corn, left the port of Odesa bound for Lebanon, and on Tuesday at around 07:14 GMT it arrived off the Danube Delta, and is expected to enter the waters on Wednesday Turkish where it will be inspected.

On July 22, Russia and Ukraine signed, in Istanbul, an agreement regarding the establishment of secure lanes in order to allow the export of grain blocked in Ukraine. The agreement will be valid for ‘120 days’, i.e. four months, during which the approximately 25 million tons from the Ukrainian silos can be transported before the new harvest is harvested. The ships and cargo would be inspected in Istanbul, under the authority of the Joint Coordination Center (JCC), which was officially inaugurated last week in Istanbul, according to the agreement signed on July 22 by Ukraine and Russia, with the mediation of Turkey and the UN.

“The plan is for a ship to leave every day,” the Turkish official told Reuters, referring to Odessa and the other two Ukrainian ports included in the agreement. “If there are no problems, for a while exports will take place at the rate of one ship per day,” added the official who wished to remain anonymous. He also said that the departure of the Razoni ship was delayed for a few days due to some “technical problems” that have been resolved in the meantime, and now Turkey expects the “secure corridors” to function without problems.

The cargo ship Razoni, under the Panamanian flag, is expected to arrive in Istanbul on Wednesday morning and will continue its journey to its destination, after the inspections that will be carried out in Istanbul by Russian, Turkish, Ukrainian and UN officials, the Turkish Ministry of Defense previously stated .

After the Russian invasion, Ukraine’s grain exports were reoriented towards road and river transport to Eastern Europe, but traders stress that maritime transport is needed to significantly increase the volume of deliveries.

A number of officials from the Ukrainian presidential administration said that there are 17 ships loaded with 600,000 tons of cargo at the quays of the Black Sea ports. Among them, 16 ships are loaded with Ukrainian grain weighing about 580,000 tons.
