Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister, Prince Faisal bin Farhan, will visit Tehran on Thursday on Saturday, Iran’s semi-official Tasnim news agency said.
Prince Faisal “will travel to Tehran on Saturday, June 17, to meet and hold talks with officials of the Islamic Republic of Iran,” according to the Tasnim news agency.
Prince Faisal will visit Iran, although neither Riyadh nor Tehran has made any official announcements about the visit yet, according to Ali Bahadori-Jahromi, a spokeswoman for the Iranian government.
“Some steps will be taken” towards reopening the Saudi embassy in Tehran during Prince Faisal’s visit to the Islamic Republic, he added.
Iran and Saudi Arabia agreed in March, in a deal brokered by China, to end a diplomatic rift and re-establish relations following years of hostility that had endangered regional stability, including in Yemen, Syria and Lebanon.
On June 7, the Iranian embassy in Saudi Arabia formally reopened.
