I will gladly tell the hon. Gentleman something of my visit to Saudi Arabia, where I saw Sheikh Yamani, to Kuwait, where I spoke to Sheikh Ali Khalifa and to the United Arab Emirates, where I spoke to Dr. Otaiba. Although we have different perspectives on the subject, there emerged a considerable coincidence of interests on the need for stability in the oil market. The journey was harmonious and cordial.
