Riyadh – Tehran on the path of friendship
WANA (Jun 15) – Recently, after the normalization of relations between Iran and Saudi Arabia, the Iranian embassy in Riyadh was reopened after seven years.
The Iranian side had previously announced reopening the Saudi embassy in Iran. For this purpose, Saudi Foreign Minister “Faisal bin Farhan” will travel to Tehran on Saturday to meet and talk with the Islamic Republic of Iran officials.
This trip is essential because it is said that “Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud” will soon carry a message from “King Salman bin Abdulaziz”, the King of Saudi Arabia, to “Ibrahim Raisi”, the President of Iran. This message is said to be about the development of relations between the two countries.
“Ben Farhan” is supposed to meet with the President of Iran and other Iranian officials during this trip and discuss the evolution of relations between the two countries.
There are no new details about the reopening ceremony of the Saudi embassy in Iran. Iranian local media reports that the Saudis have reserved one floor of the “Spinas Palace Hotel” located in the northwest of Tehran (Sadatabad) for a long time. The diplomats of Saudi Arabia who came to Tehran some time ago settled in this hotel and started their activities.
According to this news, until the condition of the building of the Saudi Arabian embassy in Tehran is determined, the embassy will temporarily remain in this hotel.
