Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Saud Al-Faisal has voiced his country’s readiness to improve and expand bilateral relations with Iran.

Al-Faisal said in the Saudi city of Jeddah on Sunday that Riyadh was ready to enhance bilateral ties with Tehran based on mutual interests, sincerity and frankness.

The Saudi foreign minister made the remarks in a meeting with Iranian Ambassador to Riyadh Hossein Sadeqi, who submitted his credentials to the top Saudi diplomat.

Sadeqi, for his turn, said the expansion of ties with neighboring countries, particularly Saudi Arabia, remains the top priority of Iran’s foreign policy.

Earlier on March, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani underlined Tehran’s determination to improve ties with neighboring Muslim countries, saying cooperation between Iran and Saudi Arabia will be vital for regional security.

“The Iranian administration seeks to maintain and expand friendly and brotherly ties with Muslim countries, particularly its neighbors, and in this midst Saudi Arabia has a unique and special position,” the president said in a meeting with Saudi Ambassador to Tehran Abdulrahman bin Gharman Al-Shihri.

Iran and Saudi Arabia are divided on a number of regional issues such as the situation in Syria and Bahrain.

Tehran has always been critical of Riyadh’s support for the heavy-handed crackdown of the Bahraini regime on peaceful protesters.

Riyadh also supports militants fighting the Syrian government, while Iran stresses the importance of resolving the crisis in Syria through political approaches.
