RIYADH — Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan has affirmed Saudi Arabia’s desire to strengthen bilateral relations with the Islamic Republic of Iran and his country’s keenness to discuss ways to activate agreements between the two countries.

Addressing a joint press conference with his Iranian counterpart Hossein Amir-Abdollahian in Riyadh on Thursday, Prince Faisal said the resumption of diplomatic relations between Saudi Arabia and Iran marked a pivotal moment for regional security.

Amir-Abdollahian’s visit to Riyadh follows the reestablishment of diplomatic relations between Riyadh and Tehran, brokered by China in March, after seven years of no formal ties.

“Within the framework of the implementation of the agreement, the missions of both countries have resumed their work, and so have the ambassadors-designate,” Prince Faisal said.

Prince Faisal said that the Kingdom is keen to activate security and economic agreements that were inked with Iran. He also conveyed Saudi Arabia’s gratitude to Iran for its support of the Kingdom’s bid to host World Expo 2030.

For his part, Amir-Abdollahian described the discussions in Riyadh as “fruitful.”

He said that the Islamic Republic values the role Saudi Arabia plays in the region, adding that the two countries can work together to resolve lingering regional issues.

Amir-Abdollahian said that relations with Saudi Arabia were moving in the right direction and stressed that his country was determined to strengthen relations with the Kingdom.

He added that Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi will visit Saudi Arabia “soon.”

Prince Faisal had made a landmark visit to Tehran in June, where he met with Amir-Abdollahian and President Ebrahim Raisi.

Under the deal signed in March, Riyadh and Tehran agreed to reopen embassies and consulates in each other’s territories and implement security and economic cooperation agreements that were signed over 20 years ago.
