Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian met in Jeddah for "frank and fruitful" talks.

According to the minister, the conversations were "clear, frank, productive, and constructive based on neighborhood policy."

The minister noted that both sides emphasized the need to improve enduring relationships in all areas.

Amir-Abdollahian reaffirmed Iran's intention to strengthen ties with the states in the region, especially Saudi Arabia, during the meeting.

The senior Iranian diplomat stated, "By enhancing comprehensive cooperation, including in the political, economic, commercial, transit, scientific and technological, cultural, and popular fields, the Islamic Republic of Iran and Saudi Arabia could contribute to further growth and prosperity in the region."

According to him, Riyadh and Tehran have a "historic responsibility" in light of recent events throughout the world.

Amir-Abdollahian emphasized the need to foster discussion and development-oriented connections as the "path to success" in the area while highlighting Iran's accomplishments and strengths.
