UNITED NATIONS, March 8 (Reuters) - Top U.N. trade official Rebeca Grynspan will meet senior Russian officials in Geneva next week to discuss extending a deal that allows the Black Sea export of Ukraine grains amid Russia’s war in the country, a U.N. spokesperson said on Wednesday.
“That’s the next step, and we’ll see whether anything further is needed than that,” deputy U.N. spokesperson Farhan Haq told reporters. “The Secretary-General will continue to do all he can to remove obstacles to the export of Russian fertilizers.” (Reporting by Michelle Nichols; editing by Susan Heavey)
