ISTANBUL, October 11. /TASS/. Russia’s Energy Minister Alexander Novak still plans to participate in the meeting of representatives of oil-exporting countries in Istanbul despite the fact that representatives of some countries dropped plans to take part.
"I don’t think there will be a full complement that was present in Doha (in April 2016 - TASS). I plan to attend the meeting in order to discuss Algiers decisions and the way further consultations will be held," Novak said on the sidelines of the World Energy Congress on Tuesday.
Earlier Reuters reported that Saudi Arabia’s energy minister would not participate in the meeting. Also, representatives of Iran and Iraq do not plan to attend the meeting.
