Saudi King Salman, MBS receive letters from Iranian President Raisi
The Saudi leadership receives letters from the Iranian President on enhancing bilateral relations following diplomatic advances.
Saudi Arabia's King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman have received letters from Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, the official Saudi Press Agency reported on Thursday.
The letters discussed bilateral relations between the two countries in various fields and pathways to strengthen them.
Saudi Deputy Foreign Minister Waleed Abdulkarim El Khereiji received the letters during a meeting with Iran's Ambassador to Saudi Arabia Alireza Enayati.
Earlier on Wednesday, Abdullah bin Saud al-Anzi, the newly appointed Saudi Arabian Ambassador to Tehran, expressed his utmost satisfaction regarding the recent reestablishment of diplomatic relations between the two nations.
In an exclusive interview with IRNA, al-Anzi emphasized that these ties would flourish across various domains, encompassing trade, economics, and investment through fostering bilateral relations.
The interview was held on the sidelines of a special ceremony hosted by the Chinese Embassy in Tehran.
In his address, he extended his gratitude to the People's Republic of China for their instrumental role in mediating the agreement that led to the resumption of relations between Riyadh and Tehran.
The two nations made the historic decision in March to restore their diplomatic ties, marking the end of a seven-year period of estrangement.
Iran took a pivotal step in June by officially reopening its embassy in Riyadh, demonstrating its commitment to this renewed relationship. This move was soon followed by the reopening of its consulate in Jeddah and the establishment of a representative office with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, solidifying its diplomatic presence.
In a reciprocal gesture, the Saudi embassy in Tehran and its consulate in Mashhad have also resumed their regular operations.
