“We affirm that hunger should never be used as a weapon again,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said in his speech at the International Food Security Summit.
In his speech at the International Food Security Summit, Zelenski pointed out the Grain Agreement reached through the mediation of Turkey and the United Nations, and said, “We affirm that hunger should never be used as a weapon again. Without Ukrainian food, without our partners and leadership, social stability would not have been possible in regions like North Africa or the Middle East. This is exactly what Russia wanted. We must not allow this,” he said.
“WE SEND 12 MILLION TONS OF FOOD”
Stating that food security is one of the key elements of stability, Zelenski said, “Food security is one of the key elements of global stability. This Is Where Ukraine ‘s leading role is most evident. Thanks to our grain export initiative from three Black Sea ports, we sent approximately 12 million tons of food to the World Market. To 40 countries of the world. “More than two and a half million tons of this amount is for countries that are not only suffering from food shortages, but are also in a serious crisis.”
