Agriculture Minister in talks with Ukraine counterpart on grain transport plan
Nagy noted that the proposal for the fund was made at a meeting of European Union agriculture ministers in Brussels in July, adding that a joint European solution must be found to manage the process.
The minister welcomed a recent agreement between Ukraine and Croatia on the use of ports on the River Danube and the Adriatic Sea. Hungary, he said, backed fast-tracking produce to those ports.
Meanwhile, Nagy said a ban on Ukrainian farm imports to neighbouring countries should be extended beyond the Sept. 15 expiration date.
