JEDDAH, Saudi Arabia (Reuters) - Nigeria’s oil minister said on Sunday he hoped the supply cut agreement between OPEC and non-OPEC members would be extended until year-end.

“I’m hoping so,” Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu said when asked if the deal needs to be extended. “I’m not so much worried about wars. I don’t think that will happen... I don’t think anybody’s going to push to the point of war,” Kachikwu said when asked about a risk of war in the region.
