Iranian Foreign Minister: I will visit Saudi Arabia soon

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian said that he will soon visit Saudi Arabia.

Saudi media outlets quoted Abdullahian as saying that he had received an official invitation from Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan to visit the Kingdom. He also pointed out that he would work to meet it.

Abdullahian’s statements came during a press conference on Friday evening, in the Lebanese capital, Beirut. He confirmed his welcome to his Saudi counterpart’s invitation.

While Abdullahian revealed the imminent reopening of the embassies in Tehran and Riyadh within days, he stressed that the return of relations between the two countries would benefit the entire region.

A joint statement from Iran and Saudi Arabia was issued last March under Chinese auspices. The two countries announced the agreement to resume diplomatic relations between them and reopen their embassies and representations within two months.
