Iran Reaches out to Saudi for Stability
(Muscat) – Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has appealed to Saudi Arabia to work with Tehran towards achieving regional “stability”, as he pressed a tour seeking rapprochement with Gulf Arab states. Zarif arrived in Doha after visits to Kuwait and Oman for meetings aimed at assuring top officials that a deal Iran secured with world powers on its disputed nuclear programme is in their interest.
During his stopover in the Omani capital Muscat, Zarif called on Saudi Arabia to jointly work with Iran to resolve regional issues. “I believe that our relations with Saudi Arabia should expand as we consider Saudi Arabia as an extremely important country in the region and the Islamic world. We believe that Iran and Saudi Arabia should work together in order to promote peace and stability in the region.” Zarif said.
