Iranian and Saudi foreign ministers expected to meet in Iraq soon
The Iranian and Saudi foreign ministers are expected to meet in Iraq soon, Iran's semi-official Fars news agency reported on Tuesday.
"Iranian foreign minister Hossein Amirabdollahian and Saudi foreign minister Faisal bin Farhan will meet in Iraq in the near future," an Iranian member of parliament told Fars news agency.
He added the two would discuss bilateral issues such as the reopening of embassies and regional matters such as the Yemen crisis.
Predominantly Sunni Muslim Saudi Arabia and Shia Iran are engaged in proxy conflicts across the Middle East, including the devasting seven-year war in Yemen.
Riyadh severed ties with Tehran in 2016 after Iranian protesters stormed the Saudi embassy in the Iranian capital following the execution of a Shia cleric in Saudi Arabia.
Earlier this year, the Iran-aligned Houthi rebels claimed they attacked key targets in Saudi Arabia, including two oil installations.
