TEHRAN, April 29 Iran's Oil Minister said on
Saturday OPEC and non-OPEC countries had given positive signals
for an extension of output cuts, which Tehran would also back.
"During these last days we received a positive signal from
OPEC members and non-OPEC contributors in this agreement for
cutting the production for extending this agreement for the
second half of 2017," Bijan Zanganeh told reporters.
Zanganeh blamed the United States for lack of foreign
investment in Iran's energy sector, citing political pressure on
international oil companies.
