DOHA, Qatar (AP) — Qatar's oil minister says 12 countries have agreed so far to participate in a meeting it's hosting next month to discuss a freeze in oil output levels.

Those confirmed so far are Saudi Arabia, Russia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Venezuela, Nigeria, Algeria, Indonesia, Ecuador, Bahrain, Oman and Qatar.
