Can't Pay - Can't Have

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said that there was "still a long way to go" in resolving the global food crisis. He was on a visit to the Ukrainian port of Odesa, where grain exports are moving after a months-long blockade. Guterres also spoke of the need for unimpeded access to Russian food and fertilizers, which are subject to export delays because of sanctions.

"It is time for massive and generous support so developing countries can purchase the food from this and other ports — and people can buy it," Guterres said.
