'Arab Spring won’t affect energy supply'

Dec 05 2011 09:55

Doha - The emir of energy-rich Qatar moved on Monday to reassure consuming countries that energy supplies from the Middle East will not be disrupted by political upheavals sweeping the region.

"Events in the Arab region raised concern over energy supply... I would like to stress on the commitment made ... to maintain oil supply," Emir Sheikh Khalifa bin Hamad Al-Thani said at the opening of an energy forum in Doha.

"We believe that supply will overcome the crises in the Middle East region," he added.
