A senior U.N. official involved in the Black Sea grain initiative negotiations on Thursday welcomed an agreement to extend the deal, adding that work needed to continue on easing fertiliser exports.

"The renewal of the Black Sea grain initiative is good news for global food security and for the developing world," Rebeca Grynspan, secretary-general of the U.N. Conference on Trade and Development said on Twitter, calling it a "beacon of hope".

"Solving the fertilizer crunch must come next," she added, in an apparent reference to Russian demands that the global body help ease Russia's food and fertiliser exports.
