Russia urges, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Norway, Brazil to join effort tostabilize oil prices

   Russia   has   urged   Kazakhstan,
Azerbaijan,   Norway   and   Brazil   to   become   involved   in the effort to 
stabilize   prices on oil, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin told 
a session    of   the   Organization   of   the   Petroleum Exporting Countries 
(OPEC).
      "We think it is particularly important today to involve independent 
oil producers    in the effort to stabilize the country's oil market. This 
refers primarily    to   Kazakhstan,   Azerbaijan, Norway and Brazil. All of 
them are    no   less   interested   in   stable   and fair prices for oil than 
ourselves," he said.   Interfax.com
