Iran, Saudi FMs satisfied with talks in Tehran

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian and his Saudi counterpart Prince Faisal bin Farhan, in a press conference in the Iranian capital on Saturday, expressed satisfaction with their meeting which happened earlier in the day.

Amirabdollahian said that he was pleased to host his counterpart in Tehran nearly 100 days after a meeting in Beijing.

The Saudi foreign minister said that he has had positive and clear talks with Amirabdollahian in a meeting which he said was held to complete the agreements made in the Chinese capital.

The meeting in Tehran was the third meeting between the foreign ministers of Iran and Saudi Arabia after Tehran and Riyadh resumed diplomatic relations in China-brokered talks between top security officials of the two countries in Beijing in March.

The two earlier meetings of the two foreign ministers took place in third countries while today’s meeting in Tehran is the first meeting of the top diplomats of Iran and Saudi Arabia in one of their capitals after seven years of no formal ties.

Iran and Saudi Arabia severed diplomatic relations in 2016 after angry protesters rushed into Saudi diplomatic missions in Tehran and Mashhad following Riyadh’s assassination of a prominent Shia cleric Nimr Baqir al-Nimr.
