"First we need to wait for the meeting, and if the meeting's participants themselves reach the appropriate understanding, then Russia will accordingly be ready to coordinate actions," Peskov told reporters.
On September 28, the OPEC member states reached an agreement on the sidelines of an international energy forum in Algeria. The output ceiling was set at 32.5-33 million barrels a day for the whole cartel. OPEC also decided to establish a technical committee to identify the production volume of individuals member countries. The date of the oil output freeze is expected to be presented at the cartel's upcoming meeting in November.
Putin said at the World Energy Congress in Istanbul on Monday that Russia was ready to freeze and possibly cut oil production following that agreement.
