MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russia will hold consultations with Saudi Arabia on freezing the output of oil, Russian Deputy Energy Minister Kirill Molodtsov said Monday.

“We will hold according consultations with our Saudi colleagues,” Molodtsov told RIA Novosti in regard to further discussions on freezing oil output.

What Led to Failure at Doha and How Will It Affect Oil
Oil prices have plunged more than 60 percent from their peak of $110 per barrel in June 2014 amid fears that global oil production is outpacing demand.

In February, the energy ministers of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Venezuela, and Russia discussed the current oil market situation in Doha and agreed to freeze oil production at January levels if other countries followed suit, in a bid to keep oil prices from falling further.
