We continue to work with international partners to resume the export of grain and other important food exports like sunflower oil from Ukraine to the countries that desperately need them. We support the US Call to Action and the German Presidency-led G7 Global Alliance as ways to achieve this. We are urgently working with Ukraine, the UN, the G7 and the international community to restart Ukraine's food exports to global markets via the international commercial shipping industry.
