The Iranian embassy in Riyadh reopened its doors today, Wednesday, for the first time since the severance of diplomatic relations between Iran and Saudi Arabia seven years ago.

According to the international news agency Tasnim, an eyewitness told Reuters that the doors of the Iranian embassy in Saudi Arabia opened for the first time in 7 years.

Tasnim reported that a Reuters correspondent reported that the doors of the Iranian embassy compound in Riyadh were opened while the Iranian delegation was being searched, and a white car was seen in front of it.

Today, Wednesday, the Iranian Foreign Ministry announced the arrival of an Iranian delegation to Riyadh in preparation for the opening of an embassy in the capital Riyadh and a consulate in Jeddah.

Nasser Kanaani, a spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry, said that the delegation consists of two groups, one of which is sent to Riyadh to inspect the Iranian embassy, ​​and the other to Jeddah to take the necessary measures to open an Iranian consulate and Iran’s representative to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.

Kanaani stressed that his country is looking to reopen its offices ahead of the Hajj season.

It is worth noting that the Saudi delegation, which has been in Iran since Saturday, will leave for Mashhad tomorrow.

On March 10, Riyadh and Tehran announced an agreement to resume diplomatic relations and open embassies and diplomatic missions within two months.
