Geopolitics make it impossible to say how stable current oil price growth is - minister

MOSCOW. May 14 (Interfax) - Acting Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said it is difficult to forecast whether the upward trend in oil prices will continue since it is being influenced by very many geopolitical factors.

"We need to see how long these prices will be stable. Right now it's impossible to say that they're stable, because a great deal of geopolitics is influencing prices," Novak told reporters.
