Russia’s foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, on a diplomatic offensive in Egypt, has dismissed claims that Moscow caused the global food crisis.
In a speech to newsmen in Cairo, Mr. Lavrov said Western nations were distorting the truth about the impact of sanctions on global food security.
He accused Western nations of trying to impose their dominance over others.
Reports said much of the Arab World and Africa is badly affected by grain shortages caused by Russia’s war in Ukraine.
According to the report, landmark deal to resume Ukraine’s grain exports is still hanging after Russia attacked targets in the Port of Odesa.
