MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said on Monday he would attend OPEC+ meetings which start this week in Vienna, so long as they still go ahead amid coronavirus fears.

Russia is evaluating a proposal for an oil production by OPEC and its allies of 600,000 barrels per day (bpd), Novak said earlier on Monday, as oil-producing countries seek to limit the adverse effects on demand of the virus’ global spread.
