BRUSSELS, June 20 —Germany supports Poland and Romania in adapting their railways to enable the export of millions of tonnes of grain stuck in Ukraine due to a Russian sea blockade, German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock said today.
“The railway tracks need to be modernised, we need the right cargo wagons – the German government is working on this with many other actors,” she said as she arrived for a meeting with her European Union counterparts in Luxembourg.
“It is clear that, in the end, we will certainly not be able to get out all grain but if we even just manage to free part of it, on various routes, then this will help as we are facing this global challenge.” — Reuters
