Iran reopens Consulate General in Saudi city of Jeddah

The Islamic Republic of Iran on Wednesday officially reopened its Consulate General in Saudi Arabia’s port city of Jeddah.

The diplomatic mission was reopened in a ceremony attended by a number of Iranian and Saudi officials.

Also on Wednesday, the Islamic Republic reopened its office to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, a Jeddah-based intergovernmental organization made up of 57 member states that works to protect the interests of the Muslim world.   

A day earlier, Iran reopened its Embassy in the Saudi capital Riyadh, more than three months after the two countries agreed to resume diplomatic relations under a deal brokered by China.

The two regional countries re-established relations after more than seven years. They severed ties over a dispute on the Saudi execution of a prominent cleric.

Iran has named Alireza Enayati as its ambassador to Saudi Arabia.
