Sheik Zaki Ahmed Yamani acknowledged that some members of the world oil cartel want a special meeting to consider new prices before their next scheduled ministerial session in December. But he said: "I don't see why we should go to a special meeting." Asked whether others might try to boost prices on their own, Yamani said: "I wish them good luck. No one can increase without Saudi Arabia." He said Saudi Araba stood firm against an increase this year "because we feel it's in the interests of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) as well as in the world's economy which Is about to recover." Yamani spoke with reporters before leaving Bali after a meeting of the (OPEC) which decided Friday to leave oil prices unchanged. The current price of (11.51 per barrel of a standard grade oil was set last Oct. 1 when OPEC voted a 10 per cent increase and froze the price until June 30. An OPEC communique said the oil nations, after considering an economic commission report, decided to instruct the commission to continue its work and report back to the next OPEC ministers' meeting. The communique set the next meeting for Dec. 15 in Doha, Qatar, but OPEC Secretary General M.O. Feyide and other representatives said they would not rule out an earlier special meeting. Those members of the 13-nation cartel seeking a price boost, notably Iran and Iraq, argued that oil prices should be raised to match rising costs of Western manufactured goods. They spoke of increases up to 15 per cent. In saying he saw no reason for a special meeting before December, Yamani commented: "I think some were bitter, and I can see why." He said the conference made some progress on the touchy problem of revising oil price differentials, but he did not elaborate. Individual OPEC members have set prices for different types of oil above or below the standard price depending on the demand for their products on the world market.
