A meeting of aluminum-producing nations dragged into a fourth day Friday amid warnings that attempts to get rid of a huge worldwide surplus could drag on into the weekend, a spokesman said.

The meeting was called to get rid of a massive surplus of aluminum caused by a surge in Russian exports. The Western aluminum industry was seeking to cut world output by 10 percent over an 18-month period.
