Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources Osama Kamal said the convocation of the 89th round of the Organization of Arab Petroleum Exporting Countries (OAPEC) in Cairo drives home a strong message to the world at large that Egypt is strong and stable.
Addressing a press conference following the meeting, Kamal said a symposium will be held on heavy oil in Cairo in 2013.
Kamal added that an agreement was reached - during his recent visit to Jordan-on implementing contracts for providing natural gas to Jordan.
He underlined the depth of Egypt-Jordan relations, saying Jordan welcomes Egyptian workers, whose conditions should be legalized in the country.
A number of Arab oil ministers and delegations from the UAE, Algeria, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Kuwait, Qatar, Libya, Bahrain and Egypt attended the OAPEC meeting.
