ATHENS, May 27. /TASS/. Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak can meet energy minister of Saudi Arabia and ministers of other nations in late July. The meetings may take place within the framework of the G20 energy ministers meeting, the Russian minister said on Friday.

"We will have the G20 meeting on July 30 and bilateral meetings with ministers, particularly minister of Saudi Arabia, may be held there. I do not rule this out and think it will be reasonable," Novak said.

Despite the lack of agreement on oil production between oil exporting countries in April 2016, Russia’s Energy Ministry hopes to continue contacts with Khalid Al-Falih, new Energy Minister of Saudi Arabia.

On April 17, representatives of 18 oil-producing nations met in Doha, Qatar to discuss freezing oil production cap, but failed to reach agreement. The meeting participants concluded they need more time to decide on freezing oil production.
