Romania and France signed a transport agreement in Paris on Monday pledging to support the shipment of Ukrainian grain to the countries needing it. The Romanian authorities have announced they will cooperate with their French counterparts to draw up a medium-term strategy for the corridors making the connection between Romania and Ukraine, including those through the ex-soviet, Romanian-speaking Republic of Moldova. The agreement with Romania will allow Ukraine to ship more grain to Europe and the developing countries, particularly in the Mediterranean, which are facing food shortages, the French Transport Minister Clement Beaune said. According to the French official, more than a third of the exported grain goes to developing countries.
