Saudi leaders congratulate Iranian Pezeshkian on election victory


Saudi Arabia’s leaders have congratulated Iran’s reformist party Masoud Pezeshkian about winning the presidential elections and showed interest in further developing ties with his country.

Last year, Saudi Arabia and its regional rival Iran, which backed both sides in the conflicts in Yemen and Syria, agreed on a China-brokered deal to restore ties after a seven-year rift.

Saudi Arabia’s state news agency SPA reported on Saturday that King Salman had said in a congratulatory telegram to Pezeshkian that he looked forward to the “continued development of relations” between the two countries and coordination to “enhance regional and international security and peace.”

According to the SPA, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the de facto leader of the oil-rich monarchy, sent similar congratulations.
