The UAE is committed to stability of the world oil market, Mohammed bin Dhaen Al Hamili, UAE Minister of Energy, affirmed today.

"Hike and fluctuations of oil prices have nothing to do with the demand and supply fundamentals and the market is well supplied for the time being, he said during separate meetings with Gregory Barker, UK Minister of State for Energy and Climate Change, and Iris Evans, Minister of International and Intergovernmental Relations, Province of Alberta, Canada, who are here to attend the World Future Energy Summit."

"The UAE is keen to see stability prevailing in world oil and market and global economy and to maintain fair prices for both producers and consumers," the UAE minister affirmed.

He said the current oil prices contribute to generate enough investment for boosting output capacity and develop renewable energy industry.
