US and Saudi energy ministers set to meet in Washington

Published: Updated:

US Energy Secretary Rick Perry will meet with Saudi Arabia’s energy minister, Khalid al-Falih, on Monday in Washington, a US government source said.

The meeting comes as the Trump administration encourages energy-producing countries to pump oil at high rates two months before it renews sanctions on Iran’s exports of crude.

Later in the week, Perry will meet in Moscow with Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak.
