Kuwait says will commit to oil freeze only if all major producers take part.


Kuwait will commit to a potential global oil production freeze only if major oil producers, including Iran, agreed to join the pact, the Gulf OPEC member's acting oil minister said on Tuesday.


"If there is an agreement, Kuwait will commit to the freeze," Anas al-Saleh told reporters in Kuwait city.Asked what would happen if not all producers agreed to join in the freeze deal, he said: "I'll go full power if there's no agreement. Every barrel I produce I'll sell."Kuwait is currently producing 3 million barrels of oil per day, he said

OPEC leader Saudi Arabia and non-OPEC producer Russia, the world's two largest oil exporters, agreed last month to freeze output at January levels to prop up prices if other nations agreed to join the first global oil pact in 15 years.
