Saudis Want Grain Venture

Saudi Arabia has proposed forming a joint venture to export Russian grain, Saleh Al-Shoaibi, head of the Saudi Shura Council economic affairs and energy committee, said at a meeting with Federation Council Deputy Speaker Ilyas Umakhanov on Monday.

The Saudi delegation also visited the Agriculture Ministry.

The joint venture could build grain storage capacity in Saudi Arabia and sell grain to neighboring countries, Al-Shoaibi said. "It will be the base for distributing product to Middle Eastern countries," he said. "On behalf of the Saudi business community, we express readiness to conclude a memorandum of understanding on formation of a JV during this visit."

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
