An Iranian lawmaker has said that Tehran and Riyadh are reviving their relations and preparing the ground for the reopening of their embassies.

Jalil Rahimi Jahan-Abadi, a member of the Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, made the remarks on Saturday in a Twitter post adding the move will have important impact on reducing regional tensions and fostering solidarity among Muslim states.

Earlier, in an interview with Al Jazeera English-language news channel, Iranian Foreign Minister, Hossein Amir Abdollahian said Iran has so far held four rounds of positive and constructive talks with the relevant Saudi officials in Iraq, Xinhua news agency reported.

"What we have stated as our official position is that relations between the two countries would return to normal whenever the Saudi side wishes. Iran is ready and welcomes the reopening of the embassies and consulates," Abdollahian added.

On May 10, 2021, the Iranian Foreign Ministry confirmed that Tehran and Riyadh had been holding talks in Iraq to defuse tensions between the two countries.
