May 22, 2012

Ukraine is seeking to reach agreement with Saudi Arabia on supplying as much as 4 million metric tons of barley to the Middle East country, Agriculture Minister Mykola Prysyazhnyuk said.

Saudi officials will arrive in Ukraine next month to discuss an accord, Prysyazhnyuk said in a statement e-mailed yesterday.

Ukraine aims to almost double grain shipments to Saudi Arabia to 7 million tons, the minister said in March, without giving further details.
