    As per the final communiqu&#233; of the oil producing/consuming countries held in Jeddah the oil market will be stabilized with more transparency and through the settling of the financial markets.

    Furthermore, investments should be boosted so that oil production and distillation grows.

    The oil producing countries did not say that they would boost oil-production, despite the fact that Saudi Arabia had announced that it would boost production by 200,000 barrels per day.

    UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who attended the meeting, offered to host the next OPEC meeting in London at the end of 2008.

    The dozens of fires that have broken out in various parts of Greece are abating. Wildfires had hit Achaia, Menidi and Maladendri, Argolida. Meanwhile, as per the National Meteorological Service, the 6-7 Beaufort winds and in some cases 8-Beaufort winds presently blowing in central and southern Aegean will abate and the temperature will rise in the west. The General Secretariat of Political Protection is warning civilians to be especially careful, as today will be a difficult day due to the strong winds that are still blowing.

    [07] Spain to the Euro Semis

    Spain became the only group winner to reach the semifinals. It will play Russia on Thursday night in Vienna. Spain already defeated Russia in this tournament, 4-1 in the teams opener June 10. What happened before is not important now, Casillas said. We dont feel like champions just because we beat Russia in the first round. Turkey and Germany will meet in the other semifinal, on Wednesday in Basel, Switzerland. Spains David Villa, Santi Cazorla and Marcos Senna also scored against Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon in the shootout. Casillas guessed right on all four Italy penalty kicks, stopping Daniele De Rossi and Antonio Di Nitale, and barely missing the shots by Fabio Grosso and Mauro Camoranesi. The victory was Spains first over Italy, the World Cup champion, in a major competition in 88 years, since the 1920 Olympics. Clearly, losing on penalties after working so hard doesnt leave us happy, Italy Coach Roberto Donadoni said. We all spent a lot of energy. Much of this quarterfinal was played at a crawl, with dozens of fouls, misplayed crosses and enough falling to resemble an Olympic diving competition. Fans jeered both teams at halftime. There were 51 fouls in the game. Spains best opportunity came in the 81st minute, when Buffon dropped a long-range shot by Senna. The ball squirmed out of his hands and rolled back, hitting the post before landing back in his arms. Later, David Silva shot inches wide early in extra time.


    Italy: Gianluigi Buffon, Gianluca Zambrotta, Christian Panucci, Fabio Grosso, Giorgio Chiellini, Simone Perrotta, Daniele De Rossi, Alberto Aquilani, Massimo Ambrosini, Luca Toni, Antonio Cassano.

    Spain: Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Carles Puyol, Carlos Marchena, Joan Capdevila, Xavi Hernandez, David Silva, Marcos Senna, Andres Iniesta, David Villa, Fernando Torres.
