The UAE is committed to working with Opec+ partners to study the market and make decisions that will ensure the stability of the global oil market, a UAE minister has said.

Speaking on the sidelines of the World Governments Summit (WGS) 2024, Suhail bin Mohammed Al Mazrouei, Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, said that the global oil market is vast and involves many variables and equations, including the geopolitical situations worldwide.
