Proposal for Energy Forum permanent secretariat welcomed
Manama 23rd April 2001

  The joint Arab Gulf-European Ministerial Council has welcomed the proposal of Crown Prince Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz, Deputy Premier and Commander of the National Guard of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, for the setting up of a permanent secretariat of the Energy Forum to develop continuing dialogue between oil producers and consumers.

The European delegation to the meeting stressed that it would study the details of this proposal and follow it up with the Government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The final joint statement issued at the conclusion of the 11th session of the joint Arab Gulf-European Ministerial Council held here today said that the Council discussed a number of issues - notably economic aspects and investment exchange. The Council also reviewed regional and international issues and exchanged viewpoints on the latest developments.

The two sides stressed the need for a just, comprehensive and lasting peace in the Middle East on the basis of UN Security Council Resolutions and the principles of the Madrid Conference, notably Land for Peace. On Iraq, the Council reaffirmed that the Iraqi Government should adhere to full implementation of all relevant Security Council Resolutions, notably No. 1284, and resume cooperation with international committees set up to reach a quick and permanent solution to this issue and to arrange the return of stolen Kuwaiti property.

On the border dispute between the United Arab Emirates and Iran regarding the three islands of Abu Mussa, Lesser and Greater Tunb, the Council reaffirmed its support for a peaceful solution to the dispute according to international law - either through direct discussion or referring the issue to the International Court of Justice.
