There may be an operation to prevent the fall before this meeting. There may be other reasons. They might have thought of all of them and said let's take one shot."

very important move

BBC Television Middle East Representative Sameer Hashmi:

This surprising statement, important in many ways. Despite the price fluctuations in recent months, especially towards the end of the year, there were concerns that global oil demand would outpace supply.

The rise in oil prices following Sunday's announcement could potentially put further pressure on inflation – worsening the cost of living crisis and increasing the risk of recession.. Interesting thing is, the fact that this announcement was made the day before the Opec+ meeting…

from members, there were signs that they would stick to the same production policy, so there would be no new cuts, so this was a big surprise. There is a possibility that more members of the group will voluntarily make cuts.. They can even tighten the stocks even more…

Development, likely to further strain ties between the US and Saudi Arabian-led Opec+. White House, He had called on the group to increase supply to lower prices and control Russia's finances.. But Sunday's announcement, He also underlines the close cooperation between oil-producing countries and Russia..
