Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan is set to visit Tehran on Saturday, Iran’s Tasnim news agency announced on Thursday.
The Saudi Prince will meet with Iranian officials. This comes after Iran officially reopened its embassy in the Kingdom on June 7 after seven years of closure.
In a deal brokered by China, the two countries agreed to end a diplomatic rift and re-establish relations following years of hostility that had endangered regional stability including in Yemen, Syria, and Lebanon.
Representatives of the Saudi and Iranian foreign ministries attended the inauguration at the Iranian embassy.
Earlier this month, Saudi Deputy Foreign Minister Walid bin Abdul Karim Al-Khuraiji welcomed his Iranian counterpart, Deputy Foreign Minister for Consular Affairs, Dr. Ali Reza Beykdely, and his accompanying delegation at the ministry’s headquarters in Riyadh.
Both sides expressed their aspirations to intensify consultative meetings and discussed potential avenues for cooperation to achieve more positive prospects for bilateral relations, serving the interests of both countries and their fraternal people.
