Qatar to establish Middle East's first international energy bourse
Qatar will establish an international energy bourse, first of its kind in the Middle East region, the Qatar News Agency reported Tuesday.
Gulf Energy, a global consortium of energy consultants and investors, signed Tuesday with the Qatar Financial Center Regulatory Authority (QFCRA) a memorandum of understanding on the establishment of the bourse, said the report.
The bourse is expected to be established as part of the Energy City project in Qatar, which is the first project to be carried out by the Gulf Energy.
According to the signed document, the QFCRA will be responsible for preparing the necessary procedures for organizational activities of the bourse, which will be specialized in the energy industry trade.
Qatari Minister of Economy and Commerce Sheikh Mohammed bin Ahmad bin Jassem Al-Thani was quoted as saying that the bourse is considered an important step with the country's plan to become one of the largest liquefied gas exporter by 2010.
Qatar also seeks to be a leading producer and exporter of oil products in order to meet the demands of the energy products and provide financial services that would go in line with the high international standards, the minister added.
Gulf Energy said the project would "raise the global stakes of Middle East's energy sector, reshape the dynamics of its oil and gas business and expand its role in the management of resources."
Ayatollah Khamenei pointed to the impudent, distorted and improper attitude of American officials on the subject [of negotiation], adding that American officials both in and out of Iraq have repeatedly called on Iran to negotiate, and that these requests had fallen on deaf ears. However, as the calls were recently repeated once more, Iranian officials reconsidered the possibility that negotiation over Iraq might be effective for defusing the tragic insecurity there, and have agreed to transfer their views to the United States.
Touching on the role of American, British and Israeli intelligence in creating insecurity in Iraq, Ayatollah Khamenei said: "Our specific viewpoint on Iraq is that the American government must hand over the country, stop inciting sectarian feelings and creating insecurity and let the Iraqi nation run itself, so that calm can be restored."
Referring to rumors from U.S. officials that Iran wants to negotiate with America on various issues, Ayatollah Khamenei said: "Recent behavior by American officials demonstrates their domineering tendencies, and that a negotiation is the same as summoning Iranian officials. We say to them that you are damned wrong if you think you are summoning Iranian officials."
Ayatollah Khamenei asserted that negotiations over Iraq are permissible, provided that the relevant officials can impress on the Americans Iran's views on the issue. But if this is meant to provide a venue for the deceitful Americans to continue their bullying, further negotiations with them on the Iraqi situation will be prohibited, just like they are on other issues.
Ayatollah Khamenei devoted the last section of his speech to the issue of nuclear energy, saying: "The gist of the enemy's idea is that the Iranian nation must not possess nuclear energy, because it will become powerful and no longer accept the bully."
Underscoring the dire need for the Iranian nation to develop nuclear energy, Ayatollah Khamenei said: "If today, the nation fails to obtain nuclear energy, it will be set back dozens of years, and when in the near future, energy is needed, it will have to stretch out its hands to aliens and enemies, and we may have to satisfy a small part of our demand by tolerating humiliation, insult and the trampling of its dignity and self respect."
Touching on the gradual depletion of oil resources and the ensuing attention of the nations of the world, including the United States and the European countries, on new and cleaner energies, especially nuclear, Ayatollah Khamenei said: "The entire world utilizes nuclear energy for progress and future security. Consequently, we emphasize that nuclear technology is the undeniable right of the Iranian people and nation. Neither myself nor any other official may give in to America's bullying."
