Media: Iran appoints Ali Reza Enayati as ambassador to Saudi Arabia


Yesterday evening, Monday, Mizan news agency reported that Iran had appointed Ali Reza Enayati as its ambassador to Saudi Arabia.

Enayati held the position of assistant foreign minister and director general for Arab Gulf affairs in the ministry, according to this agency affiliated with the judiciary in Iran.

On March 10, Riyadh and Tehran announced the resumption of their diplomatic relations and the reopening of embassies within two months, following Chinese-sponsored talks in Beijing, according to a joint statement of the three countries.

An Iranian delegation arrived in Riyadh on April 12, as part of a plan to reopen the embassy and diplomatic missions in the Kingdom, days after a Saudi delegation arrived in Tehran on the 8th of the same month to discuss opening an embassy and consulate for his country.

In January 2016, Saudi Arabia severed its relations with Iran, following attacks on the Riyadh embassy in Tehran and its consulate in the city of Mashhad (east), in protest against the kingdom's execution of the Saudi Shiite cleric Nimr al-Nimr, on charges including "terrorism."
