On August 1 local time, United Nations Secretary General Guterres told reporters that the grain ship leaving Odessa port in Ukraine earlier that day brought hope for stabilizing the global food situation.

Guterres said that after the grain ship arrived at the checkpoint in Turkey on August 2, it would transport corn to Tripoli, Lebanon. Guterres said, "this ship carries two items in short supply: corn and hope."

He said that this is the first concrete achievement of the "Black Sea Grain initiative", and the United Nations, Turkey, Russia and Ukraine have all made unremitting efforts to achieve this milestone.

Guterres also said that the world food program was planning to hire a ship to purchase and transport about 30000 tons of wheat from Ukraine, and the WFP would release relevant details in the next few days.

Finally, Guterres once again called on all parties to the conflict between Russia and Ukraine to take this opportunity, in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and international law, to end the conflict as soon as possible for the sake of Russia and Ukraine and the world.
