Congolese Foreign Minister blasts grain supplies to Europe instead of Africa as ‘hypocrisy’

The fact that the majority of supplies under the grain deal have gone to Europe instead of Africa is a manifestation of ‘hypocrisy’ – as stated by Congolese Foreign Minister Jean-Claude Gakosso in an interview with RIA Novosti


“We have found out that... the majority of ships transporting Ukrainian wheat have been heading to the European ports, and not to the ports of countries where, as they have said, a catastrophe will happen... There is a lot of hypocrisy in our world,” said the Foreign Minister of the Congo.

At the same time, he added that talks about the fact that Africans will die of hunger is an example of propaganda. The diplomat said that he welcomed the food deal, but at the same time urged not to dramatise the problems of African countries.
