CAIRO - Saudi Arabia's energy minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman and Russian deputy prime minister Alexander Novak discussed global oil markets and the OPEC+ group's efforts to maintain market balance and stability, Saudi state media said on Thursday.

Both parties, meeting in the Saudi capital, affirmed their commitment to OPEC+'s decision last October to cut production targets by two million barrels per day until the end of 2023.
