US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Wednesday he will urge Russia to fulfill a breakthrough agreement reached last week in Turkey to allow the release of millions of tons of Ukrainian grain, AFP reported.

"I'll also raise the matter of the tentative deal on grain exports that Ukraine, Russia, Turkey and the United Nations reached last week. We hope this deal will swiftly lead to Ukrainian grain being shipped again through the Black Sea and that Russia will follow through on its pledge to allow these ships to pass."
