The group is hopeful that the disputing parties will come to an agreement.

On July 22, Russia and Ukraine inked an agreement with the UN and Turkey to remove export restrictions on Russian goods and to make it easier for Ukrainian grain to be exported.

A joint coordination center with representatives from all four contracting parties was formed in Istanbul as part of the agreement. The new body resolves any incidents that may arise as grain-carrying ships leave Ukraine along the designated route.
