LONDON, July 4 (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia’s energy minister said on Sunday that an OPEC+ global oil supply pact due to end in April 2022 should continue for longer, Saudi-owned Asharq television reported.
Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman’s remarks came after the United Arab Emirates suggested deferring a decision by the group on extending the deal.
Asharq also quoted the prince as saying there should be an increase in production to meet an expected decline in oil supply during the summer period. (Reporting by Marwa Rashad in London, Writing by Alexander Cornwell)
