Organization of Arab Petroleum Exporting Countries

An international organization founded in 1968 to coordinate oil policy among Arab countries. Originally intended for conservative countries like Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, it initially excluded left-wing Arab governments from membership. It is not a cartel like OPEC (which has global membership), but it aims for economic cooperation and regional integration.
