Reuters: Saudi-Iranian Negotiations Resume This Month

Baghdad, Reuters News Agency reported that Saudi Arabia and Iran may hold a second round of direct negotiations between them this month, although the date has not yet been set.

Today, Wednesday, the agency quoted an official in the Middle East as saying that the first meeting hosted by Baghdad early this month, according to media reports, was "very constructive", explaining that "the two sides discussed many files during which the Yemeni conflict and the nuclear agreement with Iran were discussed".

This official and two other regional sources confirmed, according to "Reuters" that a new round of negotiations between Riyadh and Tehran may take place before the end of this month, but its timing depends on the progress of international talks taking place in Vienna regarding the possibility of reviving the nuclear deal.

A foreign diplomat in Riyadh said, according to the agency, that the second round of Saudi-Iranian talks is expected to take place either late April or early May.
