Iran has revealed that very serious progress has been made in the ongoing talks with Saudi Arabia aimed at improving bilateral relations.
"In the past few months, we have had more organized contacts with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia," said Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh.
Khatibzadeh added, in a statement to the official IRNA news agency, on Thursday, that there were good talks on bilateral issues between the two countries.
He continued, "We have had several rounds of talks with the Saudi government in Baghdad over the past few months."
He stressed that there had been good talks on bilateral relations, and that progress in talks on the security of the Gulf region "was very serious."
He pointed out that these talks never stopped after the Ibrahim Raisi government assumed its duties.
He added, "We believe that if the Saudi government pays serious attention to Iran's message that the solution to problems in the region lies within the region itself, and that we must reach a comprehensive regional mechanism, then we can have a stable and good relationship between the two countries."
