Recommendation 241 of the WEU Assembly on oil and energy problems (Paris, 20 November 1973)

As the oil shock unfolds, the Assembly of Western European Union (WEU) adopts a recommendation on oil and energy problems. Western Europe, which does not have the energy resources that are essential for its economy and security, depends for its oil supplies on large-scale imports, most of which come from the Near and Middle East countries. The text recommends that the WEU Council should study means of meeting any restrictions on oil supplies and promote a joint energy policy in Europe based on security requirements.
