MÜNSTER, (Germany), Nov 4, (AFP) : The G7 wants Russia to prolong a deal allowing safe passage of grain shipments from Ukraine, a senior US State Department official said on Friday at talks in Germany.

"Everyone agreed on the need to extend the Black Sea grain initiative," the official said.

The G7's top diplomats are in the western German city of Muenster for two days of talks, with the war in Ukraine at the top of the agenda.

The club of nations is "appreciative of the UN's efforts to convince Russia to extend" the grain deal, the official said.
