Abdelmoumen Ould Kaddour, chief executive officer for Algeria's state-owned Sonatrach Group, told media that "Trump tweets are disturbing, but fortunately this time he did not have an impact on the OPEC decision; the price of oil is subject to many variables, not only the tweet from the president of the U.S".
