Tehran: Iran's oil minister will not join an Iranian delegation at a meeting this weekend of major crude producers aimed at negotiating a production freeze, the oil ministry said on Friday.

In a statement carried by the Shana news agency, the ministry said Bijan Zanganeh would skip the talks in Doha, adding that "Iran already announced it cannot join the plan to stabilise oil prices" while its output is still below pre-sanction levels.

The ministry said Iran's OPEC representative would attend the meeting instead.
