Iranian oil minister Bijan Zanganeh said on Tuesday that he does not expect OPEC to reach an agreement when the oil producer group holds policy discussions this week.
"I don`t think" there will be an agreement, Zanganeh told reporters.
He also lashed out at the U.S. administration, saying oil was not a political tool and that U.S. President Donald Trump`s policies had caused high oil prices.
Oil ministers from the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries meet on Friday in Vienna, followed by talks with non-OPEC oil producers on Saturday.
