Saudi Arabia’s cabinet on Tuesday urged oil-producing nations not only to adhere to agreed cuts to production, but further reduce output to help restore balance in global oil markets, state news agency SPA reported.
In issuing the call to OPEC, which includes members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries plus Russia and other nations, ministers said the Kingdom is committed to supporting the stability of global oil markets.
After the meeting, acting Minister of Media Majed Al-Qasabi said that in addition to its commitment to the OPEC agreement, the Kingdom will voluntarily reduce output by an additional 1 million barrels a day in June. It will also try to implement additional cuts this month, with the consent of its customers, he added.
The cabinet said the Saudi initiatives aim to encourage other countries, whether they have signed up to the OPEC agreement or not, to adhere to its reduced rates and to cut output even further to help stabilize global oil markets.
During the cabinet meeting, which was conducted using video conferencing, King Salman also briefed ministers on his recent telephone conversation with US President Donald Trump.
He said they affirmed the historical and strategic relationship between the two countries and their commitment to the continuation of joint efforts to enhance security and stability in the region.
