Iranian, Saudi Foreign Ministers to meet in Ramadan

According to a plan to mend relations, the foreign ministers of Saudi Arabia and Iran have agreed to meet during the current Muslim holy month of Ramadan, according to the Saudi state news agency SPA on Monday.

For the second time in a few days, the two ministers spoke over the phone, according to SPA.

In light of the tripartite agreement that was reached in the People’s Republic of China, a number of similar problems were discussed during the conversation. The two ministers also decided to meet privately while Ramadan is still in effect, according to SPA.

Most likely, Ramadan will end on April 20.

After years of tension that jeopardized Gulf stability and security and fueled wars from Yemen to Syria, Iran, and Saudi Arabia decided to mend fences earlier this month.

Following previously unreported negotiations between the two nations’ top security officials in Beijing, a deal between the regional giants Saudi Arabia and Iran was unveiled.

As Iran strives to thwart American efforts to isolate it in the region and Saudi Arabia tries to concentrate on economic development, analysts say both sides stand to gain from de-escalation.

After its embassy in Tehran was stormed during a dispute between the two nations over Riyadh’s murder of a Shi’ite Muslim preacher, Saudi Arabia severed ties with Iran in 2016.

Iran has also been held responsible by the kingdom for attacks on tankers in Gulf waters, as well as missile and drone strikes on its oil infrastructure in 2019. Iran refuted these claims.
