Speaking on the sidelines of 22nd World Petroleum Congress in Istanbul, of which Anadolu Agency is the global communication partner, Novak said that he does not foresee any problems or dispute on the OPEC agreement to cut production due to the crisis between Qatar and some other Gulf countries.
In May 25, OPEC members agreed to extend their previous agreement by nine more months to March 2018 to lower oil output. The members agreed to continue to lower oil production by 1.2 million barrels per day (bpd) down to 32.5 million bpd.
Russia agreed to cut 300,000 barrels of daily oil production in line with OPEC's latest accord in May 2017.
"We had the opportunity to discuss this issue with Qatari minister here today. He also expressed Qatar's determination to fulfil its responsibilities that it took in December," he said.
Novak held a bilateral meeting on Monday with Qatar's Minister of Energy and Industry Mohammed Bin Saleh Al-Sada during the 22nd World Petroleum Congress.

"First unit of the Akkuyu nuclear power plant is to be commissioned by 2023, which is centenary of the Turkish Republic," he said.
On June 19, Russian state-owned nuclear power company Rosatom signed an agreement with Cengiz-Kolin-Kalyon, a Turkish consortium of contracting conglomerates, to sell a 49 percent stake in Turkey's Akkuyu nuclear power plant project.
The plant will have a capacity of 4,800 megawatts in four units and a working lifetime of 8,000 hours per year.
