KIEV - Ukraine's state-run grain trader HlibInvestBud (HIB) said on Monday it would supply 300,000 tonnes of Ukrainian-origin milling wheat to Syria in line with an inter-government agreement.

HIB said in a statement the deal had been signed last year.

"At the present time HIB is performing the first contract, in the frame of a general agreement, for supplying 100,000 tonnes of Ukrainian milling wheat to Syria," HIB said.
