Kerry to discuss possible oil supply disruptions from Iraq conflict-official

CAIRO, June 22 (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will discuss with Gulf countries this week possible oil disruptions from the Iraq conflict, a senior State Department official said on Sunday.

Kerry is on a tour of countries in the Middle East and Europe. He is expected to travel to Iraq soon at the request of President Barack Obama.

“I would expect that to be a topic of discussion,” a senior State Department official told reporters en route to Egypt when asked about possible oil supply disruptions from the Iraq conflict. (Reporting By Lesley Wroughton)
