Iran rebuffs Trump's call for OPEC to increase oil output

VIENNA -- Iran lashed out Tuesday against US President Donald Trump's call on OPEC to increase oil production and limit global energy prices, saying the cartel "is not an American organization."


The OPEC oil ministers began arriving in Vienna on Tuesday ahead of their official meeting Friday, when they will also confer with Russia, a non-OPEC country that since late 2016 has cooperated with the cartel to limit production.


Analysts expect the group to consider an increase in production of about 1 million barrels a day, ending the output cut agreed on in 2016.
