MOSCOW, February 2. /TASS/. Russia is interested in and maintains contacts with oil producing countries, as in the present circumstances the subject is very important, Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Tuesday.
"Russia is interested in it, always had, and will continue to have contacts with oil producing countries, because in an unstable market this subject is vital for the economy and is very interesting," Peskov said.
"Certainly, the theme is quite sensitive and probably this is why the information provided by the Energy Ministry was limited," Peskov added.
On February 1, Russia’s Energy Minister Alexander Novak confirmed readiness to take part in joint consultations with OPEC and non-OPEC oil producing nations if these are held after Novak’s meeting with Venezuela’s Oil and Mining Industry Minister Eulogio Del Pino.
The situation on global oil markets and bilateral energy cooperation were discussed at the ministerial meeting. Minister Del Pino also accepted invitation of the Russian Minister to take part in the National Oil and Gas Forum to be held in Moscow.
