A senior Iranian oil official has played down differences with Russian Federation over a Saudi-led push to raise crude oil production which has prompted Tehran to warn against breaching OPEC's current output limits.

"In this battle, any country that tries to take Iran's place on the oil market will be guilty of treason against Iran. and surely one day it will pay the price of this treason", he said. "We do not know how the market will react but prices will surely decrease".
Saudi Arabia has acknowledged a call between King Salman and Trump but not mentioned any production targets.
