Political turmoil in Ukraine will not disrupt Egypt's wheat imports from the country, an Egyptian official said on Saturday.

"Egypt's imports of wheat will not be affected by political events that Ukraine is witnessing," state news agency MENA quoted Mamdouh Abdel Fattah, vice chairman of the main government wheat buying agency GASC, as saying.

Egypt is the world's largest importer of wheat.

Abdel Fattah said Egypt had imported around 880,000 tons of wheat from Ukraine since July.
