‘Don’t believe we can reach agreement’ in OPEC meet: Iran minister

Vienna (AFP) – Iran’s oil minister on Tuesday said his country would resist unwinding a landmark OPEC agreement to cap oil production, and blamed US President Donald Trump for pushing up crude prices.

“I don’t believe in this meeting we can reach agreement,” Bijan Namdar Zanganeh told reporters in Vienna ahead of the crucial talks.

He also lashed out at Trump, saying the high oil prices were “created by the actions of himself, it’s the responsibility of Trump, the high prices in the market and the instability in the market.”
