Iran wants to mend ties with Saudi, UAE ‘quickly’: Top diplomat

A top Iranian diplomat has said his country is open to resolving differences with its Gulf rivals, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, “as quickly as possible”.

Tehran’s ambassador to Iraq, Iraj Masjedi, said in remarks published on Tuesday that his government “welcomes efforts to resolve issues either from inside Iraq or any other country in the region”.

Masjedi said top Iranian commander, Qassem Soleimani, killed at Baghdad airport in a US air raid last month, was carrying a message setting out Iran’s position on possible rapprochement with Saudi Arabia, the Iraqi state news agency reported.
