“We will do our best until the last breath to continue exporting Ukrainian grain to Africa and the world for food security,” he said at a joint press briefing with his Senegalese counterpart, Aissata Tall Sall.

Sall, the current chairman of the African Union, has urged Russia and Ukraine to resume their grain exports despite the ongoing war between the two countries.
