Recent OPEC resistance another blow to US: President Rouhani


Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has lauded OPEC member states’ resistance against US pressures in their recent meeting in Vienna, and described it as another failure for the United States.

“In spite of the US attempts to interfere in OPEC affairs and attempting to disrupt the balance, with the resistance of member countries and oil minister, their plots failed, marking another failure for them,” President Rouhani said in cabinet on Sunday.

At the recent two-day OPEC meeting in Vienna, Iran along with Venezuela and Libya were exempted from oil production cuts while the other member countries agreed to cut production despite huge US attempts to keep the price of oil down, marking a victory for Iran and a failure for the United States.
