US Energy Chief To Meet Russian, Saudi Counterparts Ahead Of Iran Sanctions

U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry will meet counterparts from Saudi Arabia and Russia starting on Sept. 9, sources familiar with the matter said, as the Trump administration encourages oil-producing countries to keep output up two months before it is due to renew sanctions on Iran’s crude exports.

Perry will meet Khalid al-Falih, Saudi Arabia’s energy minister, and other officials from the kingdom, the world’s largest oil exporter, in Washington on Sept. 9, a U.S. government source said.
