ALGIERS – The United Arab Emirates would support a global oil freeze initiative to help support markets, its oil minister said on Monday ahead of a meeting of oil producers and consumers in Algeria.
“If all members of OPEC are in agreement around a decision, I think there is a high likelihood of getting support of the others, especially Russia,” Suhail bin Mohammed al-Mazroui told Reuters.
“For us in the UAE, we are for a decision. We think a freeze will help if it is agreed. We hope that all are going to agree.”
