According to Iran-based Tesnim News Agency, Abdullahiyan gave information about the agreement reached with Saudi Arabia at a press conference in the capital Tehran.
Emphasizing that the agreement will establish peace in the region, Abdullahiyan stated that he will meet with his Saudi Arabian counterpart, Bin Ferhan, but did not give a date.
Iranian Minister Abdullahiyan added that progress has been made in the negotiations carried out to normalize relations between his country and Bahrain.
Iran-Saudi Arabia relations
On January 2, 2016, 47 people, including the Shiite cleric Nimr al-Nimr, were executed on charges of “terrorism” in Saudi Arabia.
Following the statements made by the Iranian authorities who reacted to the executions, the Saudi Arabian Embassy in Tehran and the consulate buildings in the city of Mashhad were set on fire by the demonstrators in Iran.
Diplomatic relations between the two countries, which were already strained due to the crisis in Yemen that started in March 2015, were completely cut off.
Iranian and Saudi Arabian officials met in Baghdad in April 2021 to hold direct talks, and the Iraqi-mediated talks continued thereafter.
Riyadh and Tehran agreed on the resumption of diplomatic relations on March 10, through the Chinese authorities, in Beijing after 7 years.
