  • Description

    The Chairman of the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), Dr Said Oteiba, has warned of the growing danger of a superpower confrontation over oil. Dr Oteiba -- who is also Petroleum Minister of the United Arab Emirates -- has been on a four-day visit to Japan. According to Reuters reports on Thursday (18 October), Dr Oteiba said there was a danger of war between the United States and the Soviet Union. The reason for this, Dr Oteiba said, was that the Soviet Union was running short of oil and would have to turn to the Middle East for supplies. Dr Oteiba also urged the "free world" to recognise the right of the Palestinian people. At a news conference on Friday (19 October), the 33-year-old OPEC Chairman said once the Palestinian question had been stabilised, oil producing countries would be able to guarantee the flow of oil.
