Inspection of Ukrainian agricultural products will be moved from the Ukrainian-Polish border to the Lithuanian port of Klaipeda. The ministers of Ukraine, Poland, and Lithuania agreed on this decision, according to the Ukrainian Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food.
"Over the next two days, veterinary, sanitary and phytosanitary control will be transferred from the Ukrainian-Polish border to the port of Klaipeda (Lithuania) for all agricultural cargoes that will be delivered to this port. This will speed up transit through Poland," the statement said.
Mykola Solskyi, Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine, Robert Telus, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development of Poland, and Kęstutis Navickas, Minister of Agriculture of Lithuania, agreed on this change during an online meeting.
According to Solskyi, the initiative to move control from the Ukrainian-Polish border to the port of Klaipeda came from Ukraine. The Polish and Lithuanian ministers supported this proposal and consider it a constructive step.
Robert Telus emphasized that "this is a good thing in building this transit, in building this solidarity corridor that we, as Poland, have built in Europe."
