Saudi, Iranian Foreign Ministers to Meet During Ramadan


Asharq Al-Awsat


Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan bin Abdullah and his Iranian counterpart, Hossein Amirabdollahian, have agreed to meet during the ongoing holy month of Ramadan, the Saudi state news agency SPA said on Monday, under a deal to restore ties.
Both ministers spoke by phone for the second time in a few days, SPA said.
"During the call, a number of common issues were discussed in light of the tripartite agreement that was signed in the People's Republic of China. The two ministers also agreed to hold a bilateral meeting between them during the ongoing month of Ramadan," SPA said.
Ramadan is likely to end on April 20.
Earlier this month, Iran and Saudi Arabia agreed to revive relations after they were severed in 2016.
The deal, brokered by China, was announced after previously undisclosed talks in Beijing between top security officials from the two countries.
