Russia halts OPEC oil production cut amidst Coronavirus panic
The Duran Quick Take: Episode 490.
The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss meetings held in Vienna for the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) cartel and OPEC+, which resulted in an impasse for negotiating production cuts amidst the coronavirus outbreak. Crude prices hit 2017 lows.
OPEC+ leader, Russia, does not want to cut oil production and instead is calling for a “stimulus”. Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and other OPEC countries are desperate for further cuts, as demand for their own oil is declining.
