ST PETERSBURG, Russia (Reuters) - Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said on Friday he did not believe that the global output cut agreement would be altered if prices for the commodity tumbled.
“If prices go down, I don’t think we’ll adjust the deal,” Dvorkovich told Reuters on the sidelines of the St Petersburg International Economic Forum.
Russia and 10 other non-OPEC nations agreed last December to join OPEC output cuts for the first time in 15 years. Last week, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and non-OPEC producers agreed to extend the curbs by nine months to March 2018.
