Romania took the side of Ukraine in the grain issue
The Prime Minister of Romania explained why the country will not extend the ban on the import of Ukrainian agricultural products.
After the deadline for restrictions on the import of Ukrainian grain to Eastern Europe expired on September 15, Romania did not extend the ban. The Government of Romania emphasizes that it is necessary to help Ukraine as much as possible until the end of the war. This was announced by the Prime Minister of Romania, Marcel Colacu.
Based on a clear position, after consultations with the President of Romania Klaus Iohannis, the Prime Minister allowed the licensing of export and import of Ukrainian grain.
“We are developing a licensing system for exports from Ukraine so that farmers are protected, but we will not implement a ban. After all, this would be a signal that we do not want to help Ukraine, which is not true,” explained Cholaku.
The government official assured that the governments of Poland, Slovakia and Moldova are interested in the possibility of introducing such a licensing system.
