China brokered diplomatic agreement between S. Arabia, Iran announced

Friday 10 Mar 2023

Iran and Saudi Arabia on Friday agreed to reestablish diplomatic relations and reopen embassies after years of tensions between the two countries, including a devastating attack on the heart of the kingdom’s oil production attributed to Tehran.

The two countries released a joint communique with China on the deal, which apparently brokered the agreement.

The Saudi Press Agency reported on the tripartite statement on Friday.

Chinese state media did not immediately report on the deal.

Iranian state media posted images and video it described as being taken in China with the meeting. It showed Ali Shamkhani, the secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, with a Saudi official and a Chinese official that state TV named as Wang Yi.

“After implementing of the decision, the foreign ministers of the both nations will meet to prepare for exchange of ambassadors,” Iranian state television said. It added that the talks had been held over four days.
