(CNN) — Ukraine and Russia signed this Friday in the Turkish city of Istanbul an agreement that allows the export of Ukrainian grain across the Black Sea, after months of negotiations with the mediation of Turkey and the United Nations. The information was confirmed by the Secretary General of the UN, Antonio Guterres.

The agreement is aimed at resuming grain exports from Ukrainian ports, which have been blocked by the five-month conflict between Russia and Ukraine.

Western officials accused Moscow of converting food supplies into weapons, while the UN, leaders and experts warned about a catastrophic food crisis that grain shipments could not reach the world market.

The agreement will include three Ukrainian ports, including the one in Odesa, which will involve a Joint Coordination Center established in Istanbul and secure corridors for commercial navigation.
