MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian energy officials discussed with their OPEC counterparts the situation on global oil markets and other questions affecting their mutual relationship at a meeting in Vienna, the Russian Energy Ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.

Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said in the same statement that a regular meeting between Russia and OPEC, a so called “energy dialogue”, was expected to take place in Vienna in October.
