Iran’s Foreign Minister Amir Abdollahian set to visit Riyadh over weekend


Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian has slated for a one-day visit to Riyadh this upcoming weekend. Reliable sources indicate that Abdollahian will engage in discussions with his Saudi counterpart, Prince Faisal bin Farhan, during his visit.

“In an official statement released from Tehran on Tuesday, the Iranian foreign minister confirmed an imminent exchange of ambassadors between Saudi Arabia and Iran. Abdollahian stated, “In the coming days, our ambassador will travel to Saudi Arabia, while the Saudi ambassador to Tehran will reciprocate the visit.””

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Nasser Kanaani, addressing the media during his weekly press conference, revealed that Abdollahian’s visit will center around bilateral matters, with a primary focus on rejuvenating cooperation across various domains. Kanaani expressed optimism, saying, “We aspire to achieve more substantial outcomes in terms of mutual goals and the advancement of bilateral relations.”

The recent signing of a momentous agreement between Saudi Arabia and Iran on March 10 has paved the way for the restoration of diplomatic ties after an approximately seven-year hiatus.

Facilitated by China, “the joint statement underscores the commitment to respecting national sovereignty and refraining from interference in internal matters of other countries”.

“The shared statement also affirms the reactivation of all collaborative agreements between the two nations, encompassing security cooperation as well as collaborative efforts in the realms of economy, trade, investment, technology, science, culture, sports, and youth affairs. This bold step forward is expected to herald a new era of diplomatic engagement and enhanced cooperation between Saudi Arabia and Iran.”
