MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia’s President Vladimir Putin is expected to meet Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman at the G20 summit in Osaka, Japan, later this week, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Tuesday.

The meeting will come days ahead of a meeting of OPEC members and non-OPEC states in early July. Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said on Monday it was too early to say whether a deal between OPEC and non-OPEC producers to cut oil production would be extended into the second half of this year.
