Italy: We Are Ready To Participate In Demining Of Ukrainian Ports

In a statement to the Italian Chamber of Deputies, Italian Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio stated that the republic is ready to participate in efforts to clear Ukrainian ports for grain export.

« Sea corridors for the movement of food raw materials, particularly wheat, from Ukrainian ports, » he said.

According to him, demining the water region in front of ports, particularly the port of Odessa, is vital for this reason, but only if Russian guarantees of safe cargo transportation are provided.

Italy « has already declared its willingness to join in any demining operations » and « intends to support the UN and maybe other partners, such as Turkey, in the effective development and coordination of operations, » according to Di Maio.
