MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia on Tuesday confirmed its participation in the OPEC+ meeting of leading oil producers set for April 9, a spokeswoman for energy ministry told Reuters.
The conference, due to be held via a video link as a precautionary measure against the coronavirus, had been initially scheduled for April 6 but was delayed “to allow more time for negotiations”, according to the OPEC sources.
