Reestablishment of Iran-Saudi relations to boost regional security, Pres. Raeisi
Iran’s President Ebrahim Raeisi says reestablishment of relations between Iran and Saudi Arabia would undoubtedly bolster regional security.
Raeisi made the remark in a Monday meeting with the visiting Iraqi Foreign Minister Fuad Hussein in Tehran.
Iran’s chief executive lauded Iraq’s positive role in regional developments, saying, “The initiatives offered and measures taken by Iraq to improve cooperation among regional countries free from foreign meddling play an effective role in bolstering regional collaboration.”
Raeisi noted that five rounds of talks between Tehran and Riyadh, which were mediated by Iraq, were positive and useful, emphasizing that implementation of agreements reached in those talks would pave the way for further promotion of the two sides’ interactions.
“Reestablishment and further bolstering of relations between Iran and Saudi Arabia will be in the interest of the regional security,” Iran’s president said.
