The three parties agreed on Oct. 31 to move 16 ships that are in Turkish waters following Russia's decision to exit the UN-backed Black Sea Grain Initiative that had allowed food exports from Ukraine's Black Sea ports, Reuters reports, citing a statement from the Joint Coordination Center in Istanbul. 

The statement also said the three parties had agreed on inspections for another 40 ships on Oct. 31.
