Despite political tension with Saudi Arabia, Qatar remains committed to the extended oil production cap, reports the Wall Street Journal.

Qatar renews commitment to the strategy set forth by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) to reduce oil output until March 2018. Qatar's energy minister Mohammad al-Sada announced Sunday that the current situation in the region will not impede Qatar's international responsibilities, reports the Wall Street Journal.

Qatar rejects the accusations.
