The fifth round of talks between Tehran and Riyadh will be held in Iraq soon, Iran’s Ambassador to Iraq Iraj Masjedi said, according to Tasnim News Agency.
Masjedi said Baghdad, which has played host to four rounds of negotiations between Iran and Saudi Arabia so far, will also host the fifth round. He didn’t give a date for the meetings.
Back in October, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Saeed Khatibzadeh said the talks between the two countries are in progress.
“We have held four rounds of talks with Riyadh in Baghdad. The last round was held at the time when we were in New York (for the UNGA). These contacts are now in progress uninterruptedly,” the spokesman said.
According to Khatibzadeh, the talks between the Iranian and Saudi delegations are focused on bilateral and regional issues, especially the Persian Gulf affairs.
