DUBAI, Feb 16 (Reuters) - Kuwait is committed to an agreement between top exporters Russia and Saudi Arabia to freeze output provided other producers back it, Kuwait's acting Oil Minister Anas al-Saleh said on Tuesday.

"Kuwait welcomes the Doha deal ... and confirms its commitment to what was agreed - to freeze production according to January 2016 levels - ... provided that the main producers from OPEC and outside OPEC are committed to it," he said in a statement.

He said he hoped the agreement would provide a positive atmosphere to support oil prices and balance the oil market.
