BAGHDAD – OPEC member Iraq says it supports any deal to prop up oil prices ahead of next week's meeting of oil producers in Algeria.

In a statement issued late Thursday, Iraq's Oil Minister, Jabar al-Luaibi, set a production ceiling of between 4.75 and 5 million barrels per day. Al-Luaibi said Iraq's "fixed policy is to maintain Iraq's share" in the global oil market.
