UN secretary-general inspects grain ship in Istanbul

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres (pictured) arrived at Zeyport Port in Istanbul on Saturday to inspect the "Invincible Two," a ship headed for the Ukrainian port of Chornomorsk.

The United Nations secretary-general is then expected to visit the Joint Coordination Center in Istanbul, which was formed as part of the grain corridor agreement to safeguard export shipments from Ukraine's Black Sea ports to the global market.

Prior to this, the Turkish Ministry of Defense confirmed that two ships left Ukraine’s Chornomorsk port, loaded with 6,300 tonnes of sunflower oil and 25,000 tonnes of wheat respectively, increasing the total number of ships to depart Ukrainian Black Sea ports to 27.
