Maduro: US applies pressure on OPEC and Russia

The United States is seeking to block a deal between OPEC and non-OPEC nations to stabilize oil markets, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said, accusing Washington of applying "war-like" pressure to prevent an agreement, Reuters reports.

"You can't imagine all the pressure that is coming from Washington to ensure the failure of the efforts we have made during the last year to create a common strategy among OPEC and non-OPEC producers to stabilize the market and prices," Maduro said during his weekly televised broadcast.

"These are almost war-like pressure on governments, on heads of state," he said, adding that US policy makers have a "fatal obsession" with Russia, OPEC and Venezuela's leftist government.
