VIENNA, Dec 3 (Reuters) - Iraq is keeping its production plans, the country's oil minister Adel Abdel Mahdi said on Thursday when asked if the country would be prepared to freeze its output.

Industry publication Energy Intelligence reported on Thursday that Saudi Arabia, the largest oil producer in the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), might propose that members cut oil output by 1 million barrels per day next year if non-OPEC countries joined in and if OPEC member Iraq froze its output and Iran also contributed to cuts.

Ministers from the group are holding an informal meeting on Thursday ahead of their formal discussions on Friday.
