Ukrainian Goods to Iran

KIEV — Traders plan to ship 63,000 tons of Ukrainian corn to Iran in coming weeks, Kiev-based ProAgro consultancy said Thursday, citing data from Ukrainian seaports.

It also said traders had exported 16,500 tons of corn and 10,500 tons of sunflower oil to Iran so far in February.

ProAgro said the cargo with corn had left Ukraine on Feb. 3 for Bandar Imam Khomeini port, while a vessel with 10,500 tons of sunflower oil left Ukraine on Feb. 10. Ukrainian sunflower oil is due to be unloaded in the Iranian port of Bandar-e-Abbas. It was not clear how Iran had paid for the latest shipments of Ukrainian corn and sunflower oil.
