Zanganeh Meets Russian Energy Min.

Zanganeh had separate meetings with senior OPEC officials after a lecture in the International Energy Forum on Tuesday.

Zanganeh met Algerian Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal and Iraqi Minister of Petroleum Jabar Ali al-Luaibi on the sidelines of the 15th session of the International Energy Forum (IEF) in Algeria on Tuesday.

Speaking to Bloomberg, Zanganeh said Iran is not willing to freeze its oil output at current levels and doesn’t intend to forge an agreement with other major crude producers at talks in Algiers this week.

Iran wants to raise its crude production to 4 million barrels a day, Zanganeh told Bloomberg Television in an interview Tuesday.
