Saudi officials have arrived in Iran to open an embassy in Tehran and a consulate in Mashhad.
According to Arab News, the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Saturday that “after the agreement reached between Saudi Arabia and Iran with the cooperation of China, both countries are reopening their embassies.”

Saudi Arabia and Iran agreed to reopen their diplomatic missions in March this year, ending diplomatic differences.
Chinese President Xi Jinping played an important role in brokering an agreement to restore relations between the two countries, after Saudi Arabia severed diplomatic ties with Iran in 2016.
According to Saudi Arabia’s official news agency, SPA, the visit by Saudi officials on Saturday is part of the implementation of the trilateral agreement, which was agreed upon by Saudi Arabia and Iran, hosted by China.

“Both sides emphasised the importance of implementing the Beijing Agreement, which will expand the areas of mutual trust and cooperation and contribute to the security, stability, and prosperity of the region.”

When Saudi Arabia‘s Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan and his Iranian counterpart Hossein Amir Abdullah met in Beijing on Thursday, they expressed their determination to bring security and stability to the Gulf region.
