"Different dates, as I have stated earlier, are currently being discussed. Most likely, this meeting will take place in April. However, I think we will be able to coordinate the specific date in next few days," Novak told reporters following talks with Iranian Petroleum Minister Bijan Zangeneh.
The meeting’s venue is also being discussed, the Russian energy minister noted.
"Such consultations, negotiations within OPEC are held by the OPEC member states, basically, it is Qatar, who currently chairs OPEC. Doha is also considered as an option for the meeting," Novak stressed.
