Egypt received two cargoes of diesel fuel from Saudi Aramco
CAIRO: Egyptian Petroleum Minister Tarek El Molla said on Sunday his country had received two cargoes of diesel fuel from Saudi Arabian state-owned oil company Aramco on Friday and Saturday.
Molla was speaking at an energy conference in Cairo.
Saudi Arabia agreed in April last year to provide Egypt with 700,000 tonnes of refined oil products a month for five years, but the cargoes stopped arriving in early October.
Though officials from both sides have denied the existence of tensions or disagreements between the two countries, the two have been at odds on a number of political issues.
Egypt voted in favour of a Russian-backed but Saudi-opposed UN resolution on Syria in October, which excluded calls to stop bombing Aleppo. In January an Egyptian court rejected a government plan to transfer two uninhabited Red Sea islands to Saudi Arabia.óReuters
