Saudi Iran deal 2023

"Towards Peace and Cooperation: The Saudi-Iranian Accord"

It was expected that Saudi Arabia and Iran would depend on various factors such as regional tensions, geopolitical considerations, and the interests of other nations in the region. Additionally, the nature and scope of any potential deal would depend on the specific issues being addressed and the willingness of both parties to negotiate and compromise.

Efforts for ease of tension between two countries:

there have been ongoing diplomatic efforts to ease tensions between the two countries.

In 2021, there were reports of backchannel talks between Saudi and Iranian officials in Baghdad, facilitated by Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi. These talks were reportedly aimed at improving relations and reducing tensions between the two countries. However, it is unclear if any concrete agreements were reached.

In January 2021, Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister, Prince Faisal bin Farhan, expressed hope for improved relations with Iran, stating that “we would like to see a situation where Iran behaves like a normal nation.” He also called for a “positive and constructive dialogue” between the two countries.

Rivelary between the two countries:

The rivalry between Saudi Arabia and Iran is a long-standing geopolitical conflict that has its roots in religious, cultural, and political differences. The two countries have been competing for influence and power in the Middle East for decades, and their rivalry has led to proxy conflicts, political tensions, and destabilization in the region.

Historically, the rivalry between Saudi Arabia and Iran can be traced back to the Islamic Revolution in Iran in 1979. The revolution overthrew the pro-Western regime of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi and brought to power a new Islamic Republic led by Ayatollah Khomeini. The new Iranian regime sought to export its revolutionary ideology to other Muslim countries in the region, which posed a threat to the conservative Sunni monarchy of Saudi Arabia.

Final Words:

Both Saudi Arabia and Iran have signed a deal to normalize the relationship. In fact, both countries are of the great importance. Good relationship between these countries will be a good innitiative for the whole region.
