Saudi energy minister Khalid al-Falih said on Sunday that the deal would most likely be extended by nine months and no deeper reductions were needed. "My preference will be nine (months)", he told reporters.

The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, Russia, and other producers have come together in recent years to form an alliance known as OPEC+ to help stabilize prices on global markets, either cutting back when prices dip or hiking output when they rise too quickly.
OPEC ministers are scheduled to meet on July 1 in Vienna to discuss their production policy for the next few months.

"The strategic partnership within OPEC+ has led to the stabilisation of oil markets and allows both to reduce and increase production, depending on market-demand conditions, which contributes to the predictability and growth of investments in the industry", Dmitriev said.
Benchmark Brent crude has climbed more than 25% since the start of 2019. But prices may stall as a slowing global economy squeezes demand and U.S. crude floods the market, a Reuters poll of analysts found.
"OPEC had better ensure understanding between its members first", he said, adding, "Some neighboring states should stop pugnacity against Iran and appreciate our hand of friendship".
