Iran and Saudi Arabia agreed to resume diplomatic relations after seven years and mutually open embassies.

Iran and Saudi Arabia agreed to restore diplomatic relations after seven years. In a joint statement by Iran, Saudi Arabia and China following talks between Secretary General of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani and Saudi Minister of State Musaad bin Mohammed Al Ayban in Beijing, China on March 6, Tehran-Riyadh was announced to have reached an agreement to resume diplomatic relations between the two countries.

It was stated that the foreign ministers of the two countries would meet in the near future to clarify the details of the decision taken after the agreement. It was also stated that diplomatic relations between Iran and Saudi Arabia would be resumed within two months and that the two countries would mutually open their embassies and representative offices.


On January 2, 2016, 47 people were executed in Saudi Arabia, including the Shia cleric Ayatollah Nimr Baqir al-Nimr, who were tried for terrorism. After the execution, protests were held in Iran, the Saudi Arabian embassy in Tehran and its consulate in Mashhad were set on fire. Relations deteriorated due to the war that began in Yemen in March 2015, and then completely interrupted.
