Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz al-Saud and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry wait for a meeting at the King's private residence in the Red Sea city of JeddahBy Lesley Wroughton SHANNON Ireland (Reuters) – U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Saudi King Abdullah briefly discussed global oil supplies during a meeting on the crisis in Iraq on Friday, a senior State Department official said. During the talks, Kerry referred to recent comments by a Saudi oil official that the world’s largest oil producer would increase supplies should crises in Iraq or Syria disrupt supplies, the official said. The official said Kerry believed the Saudi official’s comments were “constructive.” U.S. officials have expressed the belief that concerns in oil markets will ease once a more inclusive government is formed in Baghdad that can deal with a Sunni insurgency threatening to break apart Iraq.
