Iran and Saudi Arabia Urged to Strengthen Ties for Regional Stability

In a phone conversation on Friday, Interim Iranian President Mohammad Mokhber and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman discussed the importance of enhancing relations between Iran and Saudi Arabia for the benefit of the Muslim world and the West Asian region.

Iran (IMNA) - Mokhber emphasized that despite some powers' opposition, Iran-Saudi ties have reached a good level and the region desperately needs such relations. He urged the two countries to increase economic exchanges, remove obstacles, and meet mutual needs to further improve political relations.

The interim president stressed the significance of pursuing the policy of neighborliness and expanding relations among all the countries in the region, which will guarantee regional stability and prosperity.

Salman, on the other hand, expressed Riyadh's readiness to boost economic cooperation with Tehran and stressed the need to continue President Raeisi's path to develop mutual and regional ties.

The conversation comes after Iran and Saudi Arabia agreed to restore diplomatic ties in March 2023, under the tenure of President Raeisi, following a seven-year hiatus.

The tragic helicopter crash that claimed the lives of President Raeisi, Foreign Minister Amir-Abdollahian, and their companions has generated a groundswell of support and solidarity from Muslims and non-Muslims across the world.
