US Says OPEC Oil Cuts Bad for Global Economy, Paper Reports


FILE - Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen speaks Sept. 15, 2022, in Lanham, Maryland.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said a decision by the OPEC+ grouping to cut oil production was "unhelpful and unwise" for the global economy, especially emerging markets, the Financial Times reported Sunday.

"We're very worried about developing countries and the problems they face," Yellen told the newspaper in an interview.

She also criticized allies for being slow to send financial aid to Ukraine.

"The pace of transferring money to Ukraine is far too slow," Yellen added, pointing out that some countries that had pledged assistance had not got round to disbursing it.
