A Turkish statement said Akar held talks with Ukraine’s defense and infrastructure ministers to discuss the situation surrounding grain supplies organized by the Joint Coordination Center in Istanbul.

“As a result of intensive work and coordination in the center, tomorrow it is planned to send three ships from the ports of Ukraine as part of the shipment of grain,” Akar quoted the statement as saying. It is not specified which ports are in question.

He said the empty vessel was expected to head to Ukraine after an inspection in Istanbul, without identifying the vessel.

A spokesman for the Odesa regional administration said late Wednesday that the Turkish bulk carrier was expected to arrive at the Ukrainian port of Chernomorsk on Friday, making it the first ship to arrive at a Ukrainian port since the Russian invasion.

He identified the bulk carrier as the Liberian-flagged Osprey S.

According to a Reuters reporter, on Thursday afternoon the Osprey S was anchored in the Sea of ​​Marmara, about a kilometer off the Asian coast of Istanbul, along with other ships waiting to cross the Bosphorus to the Black Sea.
