Iranian Delegation Arrives In Saudi Arabia To Prepare For Embassy Reopening - Statement

PARIS, France - An Iranian technical delegation arrived in Saudi Arabia on Wednesday to prepare for the reopening of Tehran's embassy there, Iran's Foreign Ministery said, under a deal to re-establish ties.

Both countries' foreign ministers met in Beijing earlier this month for the first formal gathering of their top diplomats in more than seven years after China brokered the agreement to restore relations between the top regional powers.

''The Iranian delegation will take the necessary measures in Riyadh and Jeddah to set up the embassy and consulate general'', Iranian ministry spokesman, Nasser Kanaani, said in a statement.
