IEA chief Birol announces first global energy crisis

Executive Director of the International Energy Agency (IEA) Fatih Birol announced the first global energy crisis.

He said this during his briefing in Vienna.

“I believe that we are in the middle of the first global energy crisis,” TASS quotes him as saying.

He recalled that Russia is the world’s largest exporter of oil and gas, as well as a major player in the market for materials used in the energy sector.

Earlier, the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, acknowledged that the EU could take longer to agree on an embargo on oil from Russia, but expressed confidence that a decision would be made.
