Talks continue as Turkey wants to extend the Black Sea Grain deal for 120 days

This morning, Turkey said it was looking to double the extension from the 60 days Russia has agreed to. The deal officially expires on Saturday.

Ukraine rejected Russia’s 60 day offer, saying it wants at least 120 days, with an additional port added to the protection measures. Turkey will continue working to extend the deal.

Since the original pact last summer, Russia has only been inspecting roughly three boats per day in Ukraine. Analysts believe that number should be a dozen to meet global demand.
