Global Oil Cuts Likely to Be Extended

Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh told reporters on Tuesday that a global oil cuts deal is likely to be extended, but that time is needed to discuss the subject thoroughly first.

“It seems that most of the OPEC and non-OPEC (countries) are going to extend the agreement, but time is needed to evaluate the situation and to have face-to-face meetings and discussions with others,” Zanganeh, who was visiting Moscow, said.

Asked whether Iran would be ready to cut its own output under the possible extension, Zanganeh said: “I think it is necessary that all members comply with their commitments.”
