LONDON, June 18 (Reuters) – OPEC has again proposed to move dates of its next meeting, now suggesting July 1-2, two sources familiar with the matter said, as Saudi Arabia, Iran and non-OPEC Russia are struggling to agree a compromise.
Previous proposals included dates for a meeting of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries followed by a meeting with non-OPEC allies on June 25-26 and July 11-12.
“These are suggestions subject to approval,” one of the sources said.
The new suggestion came in a letter from Venezuela, which holds the OPEC presidency, another source said. (Reporting by Ahmad Ghaddar and Alex Lawler; writing by Dmitry Zhdannikov and Polina Devitt; Editing by Marguerita Choy)
