‘We intend to build a positive relationship with our neighbours in Iran,’ Saudi FM says

In an interview with FRANCE 24 on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York, Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister said that his country had concerns about a possible revived nuclear deal between Western powers and Iran, especially over IAEA inspections. However, Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud said that even a flawed deal was better than no deal. He said that there were still differences with Iran that currently precluded him meeting with his Iranian counterpart, but said “we certainly have the intent to build a positive relationship with our neighbours in Iran”.
