  • “We are serious about the talks,” Saudi international minister says.
  • Says 4 rounds of talks had been held with Iran since April.
  • Iran and Saudi Arabia have been rivals for years.

Saudi Arabian International Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan has stated that talks with Iran had been “cordial,” describing the negotiations as “exploratory,” the Financial Times reported on Friday.

“We’re severe in regards to the talks,” bin Farhan told the FT in an interview. “For us, it’s not that large a shift. We’ve all the time stated we need to discover a approach to stabilise the area.”

The Saudi foreign minister said that four rounds of talks had been held with Iran since April, adding that Iran’s attitude had been “very pleasant.”

Earlier this month, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian, referring to efforts to improve ties between the two countries, had said that talks between Iran and Saudi Arabia have gone a “good way”.

Iran and Saudi Arabia, the leading Muslim powers in the Middle East, have been rivals for years, backing allies fighting proxy wars in Yemen, Syria, and elsewhere. They cut diplomatic ties in 2016.
