"Despite the decline in oil prices and global recession concerns, the latest decision of OPEC+ countries to reduce production by 2 mln barrels per day should keep the market balance and the stability of oil prices at the level of $100 per barrel until the year-end," the Minister said, cited by the Algerie Press Service news agency.
"Oil prices recovered after the unprecedented markets collapse in early 2020 due to the appearance and spread of the coronavirus," Arkab added.
