RIYADH: Saudi Deputy Minister for Consular Affairs Ambassador Ali Al-Yousef on Sunday received Iran’s envoy to the Kingdom, Alireza Enayati.

The parties discussed bilateral relations and other topics of common interest during their meeting in Riyadh, the Saudi foreign affairs ministry posted on social media platform X.
Iran appointed Alireza Enayati as its ambassador to Saudi Arabia in May.

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia’s new ambassador to Iran Abdullah bin Saud Al-Anazi last week his credentials to Tehran’s minister of foreign affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, after a China-brokered deal in April ended years of political rift between the two countries.

Alireza Enayati served as an assistant to the foreign minister and director-general of Arabian Gulf affairs at the ministry, according to Iran’s judiciary’s news agency Mizan.
