Iranian, Saudi foreign ministers meet in Beijing, issue joint statement

TEHRAN – Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian and his Saudi counterpart Faisal bin Farhan al-Saud held talk in Beijing on Thursday and issued a joint statement in which they agreed to restore diplomatic ties.

The meeting between the chief diplomats from the two countries followed a historic peace deal brokered by China last month between the two major countries in the Persian Gulf region.

In their statement, they agreed to launch arrangements to reopen embassies and consulates within the two month-period stipulated in the deal announced on March 10.

Amir Abdollahian called his talks with bin Farhan “positive”.

“Today I had a positive dialogue with my colleague Amir Faisal bin Farhan,” Amir Abdollahian tweeted.

“Official start of Tehran-Riyadh diplomatic ties, resumption of Umra hajj, economic and commercial cooperation, reopening of embassies and consulates and emphasis on stability, sustainable security and development of the region are subjects of consensus and on common agenda,” the Iranian foreign minister wrote.
