Vienna - The head of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) has highlighted the organization's "interconnectedness" with China in the energy field and called for further enhancing energy cooperation with the world's second-largest economy.

OPEC and its member countries "will continue to provide the affordable energy that China needs to meet its rising energy demand, with our interconnectedness in the sphere of energy underlining the strength of our relationship," the organization's Secretary General Haitham Al Ghais told the 7th high-level meeting of the OPEC-China Energy Dialogue in Vienna on Tuesday.
