Saudi Arabia's Energy Minister Khaled al-Falih said on Wednesday that his country would stand with Iraq and support it.
"I was pleased today to receive my brother, Iraqi Oil Minister Jabbar al-Luaibi, and we discussed the importance of unifying the efforts of all countries to stabilize the markets," Al-Faleh said in a tweet on his Twitter website after a meeting with Oil Minister Jabbar al-Allaibi.
"The leadership of the Kingdom is keen on stabilizing Iraq politically,security and economically, and we will stand with our brothers until Iraq returns strong and prosperous," al-Faleh told Al-Allaibi.
The Iraqi Oil Ministry said on Tuesday that al-Allaibi left Iraq for Saudi Arabia to discuss the developments in the oil market and the efforts of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) to stabilize the market.
