CAIRO: Saudi Aramco oil product shipments to Egypt will resume very shortly, an Egyptian Petroleum Ministry official told Reuters on Wednesday.

“Very shortly we will finalise the time and place for receiving shipments from Aramco,” the official, who declined to be identified because he was not authorised to speak to the media, told Reuters.

Asked if shipments would resume within weeks, the official said: “No, no, we are talking about a very short time period.”
