Petroleum and Mineral Resources Minister Tarek al-Molla discussed with newly-appointed Secretary General of the Organization of Arab Petroleum Exporting Countries (OAPEC) Jamal Issa al Loughani latest preparations for the 12th Arab Energy Conference, which is scheduled to be held in Doha, Qatar, during December 11-12, 2023.

In statements on Tuesday, Molla affirmed support to Egypt’s relentless efforts to promote the organization’s work mechanisms and enhance cooperation frameworks between the member states of the organization, which was established in 1968.
