This was reported by the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine.

The Ministry of Agrarian Policy reported that on September 20, Mykola Solsky, the head of the Ministry, conducted an online meeting with Jozef Bíreš, his counterpart from Slovakia.

During the meeting, they discussed Ukraine's proposed action plan to the European Commission for exporting Ukrainian agricultural products. Bires mentioned that Slovakia is currently reviewing Ukraine's plan and finds it acceptable.

The Ukrainian government highlighted that the ministers agreed to “promptly finalize the plan and work together to maintain positive relations between the two countries.”

Some details regarding ban on Ukraine grain imports

On Friday, September 15, the European Commission decided not to extend the ban on Ukrainian grain exports to the EU: Poland, Hungary, and Slovakia announced that they would extend the embargo unilaterally.

Taras Kachka, Deputy Minister of Economy and Trade Representative, said that negotiations on agriculture had turned into aggression on the part of Poland and hints of influence during Ukraine's accession to the EU.

On September 19, Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said that Ukraine will file a lawsuit with the World Trade Organization and may retaliate by banning imports of goods from Poland, Hungary, and Slovakia.

The next day, Polish President Andrzej Duda criticized Ukraine's actions regarding the Polish embargo on Ukrainian grain and said that he and his government would defend the interests of Polish farmers.

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki also reacted to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy's speech at the UN General Assembly and announced a possible extension of the ban on food exports if Kyiv continues to "escalate the conflict."
