Riyadh and Tehran announced, early this month, to restore diplomatic ties in Beijing, a deal called a diplomatic coup by China, which brought together the regional arch-rivals.

The two sides are expected to open embassies in each other’s capitals in two months since the deal was signed on 10 March.

Top diplomats of Saudi Arabia and Iran have since held two phone calls and are expected to meet during the ongoing Ramadan, the holy fasting month for Muslims.

“Saudi Arabia sincerely appreciates the support from China in improving Saudi Arabia-Iran relations, which underscores China’s role as a responsible major country,” Saudi Crown Prince MbS told Xi.
