Opec waits on Russia's decision as it searches for oil cut deal

President Donald Trump urged OPEC nations not to cut oil production ahead of a meeting of the cartel to consider a reduction in output.
"If everybody is not willing to join and contribute equally, we will wait until they are".

Iranian oil minister has lashed out at United States special representative for Iran Brian Hook over his "meddlesome" meetings with members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries in Vienna, asserting that OPEC is an independent body that does not take orders from the US. "Being too cautious on the words, to please President Trump, runs however the risk of diluting the message", said Olivier Jakob from Petromatrix consultancy. Iraqi Oil Minister Thamer Ghadhban said Iraq as OPEC's second-largest producer would support and join a cut.
One issue that might complicate relations between the U.S. and OPEC is the murder of Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi by people linked to the government in Riyadh.
