It also condemned the "excessive" force used on those seeking to end the nearly 1,200-mile oil pipeline's advance under the Missouri River — the chief water source for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.

Despite the market's initial reaction, some are skeptical that the individual countries will each follow through with their promise to cut; the incentive to “cheat” and produce at higher levels has frequently led to overproduction in the past.
