Us President Donald Trump says he brokered an agreement between Saudi Arabia and Russia to cut production, but did not say how to implement it. Mr Trump said Saudi Arabia and Russia could cut production by 10 million-15 million barrels a day, an unprecedented 10-15 per cent of global supply, which could require the involvement of oil producers other than the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting countries (OPEC) and its allies. However, both Russia and Saudi Arabia later denied this claim, and confidence in the crude oil market was frustrated.
