Russia considers it necessary to join forces and is ready to cooperate with the United States to balance the situation on global energy markets and reduce oil production, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.
“I want to emphasize that Russia considers it necessary to join forces. We were not, as I have just said, the initiators of breaking the OPEC + deal. We are ready to reach agreements with our partners within the framework of this mechanism, OPEC+, and we are ready to cooperate with the United States on this issue. I believe that it is necessary to combine efforts to balance the market and reduce production as a result of these coordinated efforts, coordinated actions,” Putin said at a meeting on the situation in the global energy markets.
