Iran and Saudi Arabia agree to normalize relations and open embassies

Trilateral talks were held in Beijing for three days, at which the hosts of the meeting received representatives of Tehran and Riyadh. As a result, Iran and Saudi Arabia agreed to normalize relations and open embassies.

This is reported by the Iranian news agency Tasnim.

Decided to resume diplomatic relations and reopen their embassies within the next two months

- said in a statement.

From Tehran, the event, which lasted from March 6 to 10, was attended by Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani. The Saudis were represented by National Security Adviser Musaid Al Aiban. The parties managed to resolve all differences and reach reconciliation.

In a joint statement following the talks, the representatives of Riyadh and Tehran thanked the authorities of Iraq and Oman for mediating the negotiation process and providing venues for meetings in 2021 and 2022, as well as the Chinese leadership for organizing the recently concluded round of negotiations.

Further, the foreign ministers of the two countries are to meet in order to develop a mechanism for implementing the agreements reached and agree on the exchange of ambassadors.

The termination of contacts between Tehran and Riyadh occurred in 2016. This was preceded by the execution in Saudi Arabia of the Shiite priest Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr. This was followed by an attack by demonstrators on the Saudi embassy in Iran. In response, Riyadh announced the severance of diplomatic relations.

      It would be a good company against the United States to get Russia-China-Iran-Saudi Arabia, the dollar would be overturned and there would be no "" world hegemon. Russia seized some of the American weapons that were supplied to Ukraine and gave them to Iran to create analogues. This is reported by CNN, citing sources in the Pentagon. In particular, Israel will really like the "analogue of the javelin".

          —-The resumption of ties between the SA and Iran, under the leadership of the PRC, is indisputable evidence of China's weight. Especially - in the region, the former undivided fiefdom of the United States. To be continued…

    Israel is probably beside herself with rage. In the event of a conflict between Israel and Iran, Saudi Arabia will now not allow the use of its airspace by the Israeli Air Force. Now Iran and Saudi Arabia are in the same pro-Chinese camp. China does not waste time taking advantage of the involvement of the United States in the conflict in Ukraine. The Chinese Foreign Ministry also asked the United States to withdraw its troops from Syria.

      Since 2015, ours, in an agreement with Assad and for all the time, have not once raised the issue of the withdrawal of American troops from Syria ...
      Well done Chinese! If Assad concludes a military cooperation agreement with Xi Jinping, then the Chinese PLA can legally test the vaunted American fortress at its feet.
      How else? On full international law ... At the same time they will practice ...

    The Saudis specifically went on a rampage and are getting out of the influence of the Anglo-Saxons .. They feel that if the United States is lowered, then the khan will come to them.
    And they began to flirt with Russia, straight "friends" .. But we remember who financed the supply of weapons to the Wahhabis in the Caucasus, etc.
    So there will still be a conversation .. And Iran will also present bills!
    But difficulties will begin with Israel. The pressure on Russia will increase many times so that we betray Iran or something like that

    The Saudis, using the example of Iraq, understand what is happening with the states that have worked for the Americans. Iraq fought with Iran and everything was forgiven for them even the purchase of weapons from the USSR and chemical weapons against the Kurds, as soon as Iraq stopped fighting with Iran, its CIA (promising not to defend Kuwait during an attack by Iraq, just like we would not be defending the outskirts either) was put to death in 91 year. Considering the competition for shale oil producers, the Saudis are following the slaughter and will not help purchases of tens of billions of weapons in the United States. The question is the maturity of the elites of the Arabs and Persians, they will be able to see the future and not get bogged down in joint discord, it will be good for everyone and for us too, except for the USA and Israel.

    Well, of course - with the obligatory comment of Ned Price that "we support peaceful protests and call on the authorities to refrain from violence, as we can impose sanctions in response to the disproportionate use of force"

          In Allen Dulles' book The Art of Spying, he explicitly confirmed that the US had a hand in overthrowing Mossadegh. It was simply said that some Americans had contact with the organizers of the overthrow of Mossadegh and approved of their plans. The Americans did not hide this from the very beginning. It's just that this country has a culture of handling classified and proprietary information. It is only in Russia that former servicemen can write on their pages from which countries and where planes fly that can bring something unpleasant for the United States. In the US, such a character would be deprived of either a pension or a good job.

      Now the relations of the manarchs of the Arabian Peninsula with Israel are better than those of Iran. Russia could have a hand in normalizing Israel's relations with Iran and Syria. Still, the Israelis, unlike the Sunnis, do not execute Shiites and Alawites only for their faith.

    This is an important event. I would even say unique. They were openly hostile for many years ... Perhaps the world is really changing dramatically. New alliances are being formed and the interests of sane countries are united. In contrast to the Western world, a new center of economic influence is being formed in Southeast Asia, led by China. It will be joined by the Arabs, in the future, Latin America, part of the African states, the countries of the Middle East, including Turkey. There is also a place for Russia there, and not in the last roles. If the announced visit of Xi to Putin on March 21 is confirmed, then China sees Russia as the first among equals in the future world.
