Tuesday, an OPEC source said Iran had confirmed it will
participate in the meeting.
Iran, OPEC's third largest producer, is sending positive signals
that it may support joint action to prop up the oil market,
potentially aiding efforts to revive a global deal on freezing
production levels at talks next month.
Members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries
will meet on the sidelines of the International Energy Forum (IEF),
which groups producers and consumers, in Algeria on Sept. 26-28.
Bijan Namdar Zanganeh also said OPEC Secretary-General Mohammed
Barkindo will visit Tehran "in near future".
