Saudi FM Prince Faisal bin Farhan said on Tuesday that Iran should build confidence for future cooperation.
He noted that some progress had been made in talks with Tehran, but not enough.
Prince Faisal bin Farhan added, “Our hands are extended to Iran, and there are several issues that can be discussed with it if it has a desire to reduce the escalation in the region.”
During the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum “Davos 2022” in Switzerland, the Saudi foreign minister added that the Lebanese must carry out reforms to restore the rule of the state, adding that “change and the issue of Hezbollah are in the hands of the Lebanese.”
On the Lebanese elections, Faisal bin Farhan said, “Lebanon’s elections may be a positive step, but it is too early to say that.”
Prince Faisal bin Farhan reiterated that the Gulf Cooperation Council countries seek stability and peace in the Middle East region and are keen to ensure energy security.
The Saudi foreign minister continued, saying that “oil supplies are stable, and there is no shortage in global markets,” stressing the need to search for a broader approach to address the global energy crisis.”
