中国石化新闻网讯 中国石化新闻网讯 据道琼斯伦敦10月22日消息，法国石油巨头道达尔集团首席执行长证实，他会参加本周将在沙特阿拉伯举行的投资会议，尽管该会议在本月稍早发生的沙特记者Jamal Khashoggi遇害事件后已成为批评沙特政府的焦点。在道达尔集团网站及其个人领英网页上发布的上述不同寻常的声明中，道达尔CEO Patrick Pouyanne为出席未来投资倡议大会(FII)的决定进行了辩护。Pouyanne表示，尽管他承认Khashoggi的死亡之谜所引起的关切，但由于道达尔集团与沙特国家石油公司长期以来的合作关系，以及该集团寻求接触而非制裁和孤立的历史，他决定继续参与此次活动。

DJ Total CEO Confirms Decision to Attend Saudi 'Davos in the Desert'
The chief executive of French oil giant Total SA confirmed he will attend a Saudi Arabian investment conference this week that has become a lightning rod for criticism of the regime following the death of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi earlier this month.
Patrick Pouyann defended his decision to attend the Future Investment Initiative, known as FII, in an unusual statement posted on the company's website and Mr. Pouyann's LinkedIn page.
While he acknowledged the concerns sparked by the death of Mr. Khashoggi in circumstances that remain mysterious, Mr. Pouyann said he decided to keep his engagement to attend the event because of Total's longstanding relationship with the country's state oil company and its history of pursuing engagement over sanctions and isolation.
