"I believe that non-OPEC countries should work together, openly and honestly. The right decisions have to be made. A powerful control mechanism over the carrying out of these decisions should be established. If all this happens, the oil prices will begin rising to a necessary level," Aliyev said, as quoted by his press office, after a meeting with President of Venezuela Nicolas Maduro.
Maduro, following that meeting, said that the non-OPEC members were very close to joining the agreement on oil output freeze, which OPEC countries reached in September and are set to finalize at the OPEC summit in Vienna on November 30.
