Baghdad, 24 April. – Iran and Saudi Arabia held the fifth round of negotiations on Saturday, thus resuming the diplomatic talks that had been held in order to restore their differences.
The Noor News Agency, which is affiliated with Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, stated that “the fifth round of talks between high-level representatives of Iran and Saudi Arabia was held in Baghdad.”
Persian media reported that the problems keeping Tehran and Riyadh in a hostile relationship were discussed.
The agency described the atmosphere of the meeting as positive, to the point of awakening “the hope that the two countries will take a step towards resuming relations.”
“It is expected that a joint meeting between the foreign ministers of the two countries will be held soon,” the agency said.
The Iranian side cut off the dialogue between the two countries, without formally stating the reasons.
It is estimated that this was due to the execution of more than 80 people by the Al Saud regime for alleged terrorist acts and attacks on Saudi officials.
These talks, which have been going on since April 2021, aim to reduce the geopolitical rivalry between Tehran and Riyadh.
Diplomatic relations between the Persian peoples have been cut off since January 2016 when protests erupted in front of the Saudi diplomatic entities in Tehran and Mashhad, against the execution of the Shiite cleric, who denounced the historical discrimination of this sect in Saudi Arabia, Sheikh Nimr.
