MOSCOW - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov addressed global food security issues during a telephone conversation with United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Wednesday.

Lavrov talked about the situation in Ukraine, with a particular focus on current issues related to the supply of agricultural products and fertilizers to global markets, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

He confirmed that Russia is ready to continue exporting food and fertilizers, despite existing complications, namely the presence of illegal Western sanctions and the disruption of global value chains due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Russian diplomat reaffirmed Moscow's commitment to continuing further work aimed at reducing the threats of the food crisis in coordination with the United Nations.
