ISTANBUL (Reuters) - OPEC Secretary-General Mohammed Barkindo said on Monday he expected to reach a common understanding with non-OPEC countries at a gathering in Istanbul on the implementation of last month's Algiers agreement on cutting oil production.
Barkindo said "consultations" between OPEC members and non-member states would take place at 2 pm (1100 GMT) on Wednesday in Istanbul, where representatives from oil producing states are gathered for the World Energy Congress.
"All the atmosphere has changed positively (with non-OPEC)," Barkindo told reporters, saying that non-OPEC states were "all supportive" on reaching an agreement.
