South Arabia energy minister 'optimistic' for meeting with non-OPEC countries

VIENNA (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia’s energy minister Khalid al-Falih said on Friday he was “very optimistic” about a meeting between OPEC and non-OPEC producing countries in Vienna on Saturday.

Asked whether he expected any non-OPEC country but Russia to cut crude output, he said: “We will know the exact numbers tomorrow but I am expecting about 10 to 11 countries to be on the final declaration with specific numbers.”
