Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, the Iranian Foreign Minister, and his Saudi counterpart addressed the current developments in bilateral ties, emphasizing the need of promoting collaboration between the two countries.

Iran (IMNA) - On Friday evening, Amir-Abdollahian spoke by phone with Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud.

The Iranian foreign minister expressed his satisfaction with the progress of mutual agreements, including the face-to-face meeting of the two countries' foreign ministers, the announcement of the resumption of diplomatic relations, and the dispatch of technical teams to reopen embassies and consulates.

Amir-Abdollahian emphasized that the Islamic Republic of Iran is planning to reestablish its embassies and consulates in Saudi Arabia.

He hailed the planned talks between senior Iranian and Saudi officials as evidence of the two countries' strong will to cooperate and build close relations.

The Saudi foreign minister, for his part, stated that Riyadh sees promising futures for relations with Tehran and will go to any length to enhance them.

"We have made good progress in the last two months, and our commitment to the signed agreements demonstrates our tenacity," he added.

The senior Saudi diplomat also emphasized Iran's long history of participation and importance in establishing international peace and development through multi-polar frameworks, dating back to the foundation of the League of Nations, which lasted 26 years until being replaced by the United Nations (UN) in 1946.

"Iran's interaction and presence in international multi-polar structures dates back over a century." "Pressure campaigns against the Iranian government and nation have never succeeded in undermining the country's prominent position in international spheres," Prince Faisal said.
