Vienna (IP) - The Iranian ambassador and permanent representative to international organizations based in Vienna met with the Secretary-General of OPEC at the Iranian mission in the Austrian capital.

Iran PressEurope: On Tuesday, Kazem Gharibabadi wrote in a tweet that they discussed the latest developments regarding the global oil market and OPEC with OPEC Secretary-General Mohammad Barkindo.

OPEC is determined to continue its plan to increase oil supplies to world markets gradually.

In April, the agency had predicted that global crude oil demand would increase despite rising COVID-19 disease in India, so OPEC decided to offer 2.1 million barrels of crude a day in the market between May and July.

Since that decision, crude oil prices have risen 30 percent to $70 a barrel in 2021.
