The Head of the Bakers Syndicate, Bukhrais Mohammed, said that halting the agreement to transport Ukrainian grain across the Black Sea could lead to an increase in the prices of bread.

Bukrais told Fawasel media that the price of bread will not increase at present because grain stocks have not run out yet, calling on the concerned authorities to meet with the owners of mills and find out the amount of their stocks of grain to ensure that they do not increase prices before they run out.

Bukhrais also called for the need to activate the grain bureau, whose mission is to provide strategic reserves of wheat, noting that Libya imports 43% of its wheat from Ukraine.

Russia announced a couple of days ago the cessation of the grain export agreement across the Black Sea signed with Turkey, Ukraine and the United Nations, which allowed the passage of foodstuffs to many regions around the world.
