Iran and Saudi Arabia, after seven years of crisis, agreed on the resumption of diplomatic relations and the opening of embassies on a mutual basis.
According to the Iranian guest evidence, high-ranking officials of the Iranian Security Service and Saudi Arabia came to the issue of normalizing relations between Tehran and Riyadh. The agreement was reached in Beijing through the mediation of Chinese officials, where negotiations between the parties continued on March 6.
Iran and Saudi Arabia agreed to resume diplomatic relations and the mutual opening of embassies and representative offices within two months, according to a joint statement by representatives of IRI, Sadovsky Arabia and PRC.
It is noted that the heads of foreign policy departments of the two countries will meet in the near future to agree on details.
The crisis in Iranian-Saudi relations erupted on January 2, 2016, when 47 people were executed in Saudi Arabia on charges of terrorism, including the famous Shiite religious figure Al-Nimer.
In response, the demonstrators in Iran set fire to the embassy of Saudi Arabia and the buildings of the Saudi consulate in Mesheda.
Diplomatic relations between the two countries, which were already tense due to the crisis in Yemen, which began in March 2015, were completely interrupted.
