Talks aimed at resuming Ukrainian grain exports blocked by Russia in the Black Sea have produced a deal, Turkey said.

The BBC reported that Turkey's defense minister, Hulusi Akar, said both sides had agreed on ways to ensure the safety of shipping routes for grain ships.

Akar said the agreement would be signed next week, when more talks are set to be held in Turkey.

Under the broad agreement reached Wednesday, grain could ship from three Ukrainian ports in convoys escorted by Ukrainian vessels, with a cease-fire to protect vessels within geographical limits and some minesweeping, a person familiar with the talks told The Wall Street Journal.
