TSX futures tick up on rising crude prices
Sept 9 (Reuters) - Futures for Canada's main stock index edged up on Monday, following a rise in oil prices after Saudi Arabia's new energy minister confirmed his country's commitment to OPEC-led crude supply cuts.
Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman, who took over as energy minister from Khalid al-Falih on Sunday, said on Monday the world's top oil exporter would keep working with other producers to achieve market balance and that an OPEC-led supply-curbing deal would survive "with the will of everybody".
