Saudi Arabia decided to urgently save oil prices

US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — Saudi Arabia wanted to urgently save oil prices and hold an emergency meeting with world exporters as part of OPEC + on the issue of reducing production. This was reported by Saudi Press Agency.

The idea of ​​the meeting was already supported by Iraq, which is considered one of the most affected parties in the oil war, Reuters writes .

The OPEC + deal to cut production fell apart in early March after withdrawing from the agreement between Russia and Saudi Arabia.

The agreement expired on April 1, 2020. Moscow and Riyadh declared a price war on each other, as a result of which the cost of raw materials fell to their lows over the past 18 years.
