Azerbaijan is an example for other countries participating in the OPEC+ deal for cutting the oil production, Minister of Energy, Industry and Mineral Resources of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Khalid Abdulaziz Al-Falih said at a press conference on the results of the 13th meeting of the OPEC/non-OPEC JMMC in Baku, Trend reports.
He noted that it is not only a matter of volumes, but also that of a very active participation of Azerbaijan.
"I am sure that Azerbaijan will always be one of the leaders of the deal, especially after we endorse the OPEC+ Charter. We are always happy to welcome new participants and hope that Azerbaijan, with its intrinsic pragmatism, will help us attract new countries," the minister said.
Al-Falih noted that Saudi Arabia is always interested in cooperating with Azerbaijan in various fields and sectors of the economy.
