Iran, Saudi Arabia to have discussions in Baghdad soon to normalise relations

TEHRAN: Iran's Ambassador to Iraq, Iraj Masjedi, said local media that the fifth round of talks between Iran and Saudi Arabia will be place in Baghdad, Iraq's capital, to normalise bilateral relations.

Masjedi said on Friday that the meeting will take place "soon," according to the state media news agency, without giving the specific date or details. After a six-year break, Tehran has dispatched three ambassadors to Saudi Arabia as part of the Iranian mission to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).

Iran and Saudi Arabia have recently had four rounds of talks, which were brokered by Iraq, in order to resolve their diplomatic standoff.

In 2016, Saudi Arabia severed diplomatic ties with Iran in response to attacks on Saudi diplomatic posts in Iran in the aftermath of the Saudi death of a Shia cleric.
