Boosting the two countries’ defence cooperation was also mentioned by the visiting minister, who noted that after Ukraine’s victory the two countries should work together to demine the Sea of Azov so that the supply of grains to Africa -currently conducted through a ‘green corridor’ under the UN – can continue unimpeded.
