Saudi Arabia denied comments from Russian President Vladimir Putin claiming that it withdrew from the OPEC+ agreement.
“It is Russia that came out of the agreement,” Saudi Foreign Minister Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud said in a statement carried by the official news agency SPA, adding that Russia had not agreed to an extension of the deal.
The latest comments come as U.S. President Donald Trump touted the idea of a global effort to cut oil production by about 10 million barrels from first-quarter levels and stem the historic rout in crude prices.
Separately, the Saudi energy ministry said in a statement that it had made “great efforts with OPEC+ countries to reduce the presence of a surplus in the petroleum market resulting from the low growth of the global economy,” adding that Russia is backtracking on a proposal that 22 countries had agreed to.
