Russia is aiming to keep its oil production at near-record levels despite OPEC's decision to modestly reduce its output, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said on Thursday.

France's Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault and Britain's Greg Clark chat in central London, after representatives from Britain, China, France and EDF signed an agreement to build and operate a new nuclear power station at Hinkley PointA $24-billion (£18.5 billion) deal to build Britain's first new nuclear power station in decades was signed behind closed doors in London on Thursday in a low-key ceremony that underlined Prime Minister Theresa May's cautious approach to the Franco-Chinese project. Journalists were not invited to the event but the government said the contract had been formally signed at a ceremony attended by Business Secretary Greg Clark, French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault and China's National Energy Administration Director Nur Bekri. The no-frills event for the project in Hinkley, southwest England, to be built by France's EDF and part-funded by China, contrasted with the approach taken by May's predecessor David Cameron who courted Chinese investment during a lavish state visit laid on for President Xi Jinping last year.
