Iranian delegation arrives in Saudi Arabia for embassy reopening

An Iranian delegation has arrived in the Saudi capital of Riyadh to follow up on a plan to reopen the country’s embassy and other diplomatic missions in the Arab country.

The IRNA quoted news sources as saying in a report on Wednesday that the Iranian technical delegation had arrived in Riyadh for the purpose of embassy reopening earlier in the day.

It said an Iranian team will later travel to the Saudi port city of Jeddah to inspect Iran’s consulate office and its mission to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.

Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Nasser Kanaani had said earlier this week that a delegation from Iran will travel to Saudi Arabia for the purpose of embassy reopening.

That came after a Saudi delegation visited the Iranian cities of Tehran and Mashhad last week to inspect their diplomatic premises in those cities.

The exchange of delegations come a month after Iran and Saudi Arabia reached an agreement in the Chinese capital Beijing to restore their diplomatic ties and to reopen their embassies after seven years.
