China urged to give access to agricultural products from the Russian Federation, Ukraine and Belarus to the world market

China calls on the world community to create the necessary conditions for the access of agricultural products from Russia, Ukraine and Belarus to the international market. This was announced on Friday at a meeting of the heads of foreign affairs of the Group of Twenty (G20) in Indonesia, said Minister of Foreign Affairs, member of the State Council of China Wang Yi.

“It is necessary to create conditions for a favorable entry of agricultural products from Russia, Ukraine and Belarus to the international market,” he said in a message from the Chinese Foreign Ministry.


Wang Yi urged major grain producers and exporters to remove trade and other restrictions to ease the situation in the international market.

“Major producers and net exporters of grain must unlock their potential, reduce trade and technological barriers, control the use of grain and energy, and ease the tight situation with the supply in the market,” he said.


Wang Yi called for no restrictions on humanitarian grain purchases from the World Food Program.

“There [should] not be applied export restrictive measures against humanitarian grain purchases of the World Food Program,” he is quoted as saying.
