Top oil producers agree on 'historic' cuts amid coronavirus crisis

Top oil-producing countries agreed Sunday on "historic" output cuts in a bid to boost plummeting oil prices due to the new coronavirus crisis and a Russia-Saudi price war, reports news agency AFP.

OPEC producers dominated by Saudi Arabia and allies led by Russia met via videoconference for an hour Sunday in a last effort to cement a deal struck early Friday.

OPEC Secretary General Mohammad Barkindo called the cuts "historic". "They are largest in volume and the longest in duration, as they are planned to last for two years," he said.
