In a statement to the Emirates News Agency, WAM, soon after the meeting ended here, Al Hamili said that the decision is aimed at achieving a balance between demand and supply on the international oil market and was not aimed at harming or negatively affecting the interest of consumers and the global economy, adding that the organisation will review the situation on the market during an emergency meeting it approved on January 30 to take the appropriate decision based on the situation.

He said the new Opec decision will bring down the oil reserve which, if allowed to rise high, will threaten oil prices during the second quarter of 2005, adding that Opec will not change the pricing of oil in the dollar.
