Group of Seven negotiators agreed that discussions on a potential price cap on Russian oil had progressed enough to send the issue to leaders to discuss at their summit in Germany, according to people familiar with the matter.

The negotiators known as sherpas held what one official described as “intense” talks on the matter in the Bavarian Alps before the summit began Sunday.
