Saudi FM to attend Iraq neighbors meeting in Iran
Saudi Arabia-Iran, Politics, 7/4/2006
Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal is to take part in an upcoming meeting of foreign ministers of Iraq's neighboring states plus Egypt slated to be held in Iran on July 8-9.
Observers of regional developments attach special importance to the Tehran meeting as it comes in the wake of the establishment of the first popular Iraqi government under Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki and efforts to achieve national reconciliation in the war-torn country.
The Saudi foreign minister's upcoming visit to Tehran will be his second this year. He was also a guest in Iran in June.
Al-Faisal, during his visit on June 12, held meetings with senior Iranian officials including Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei.
Foreign ministers of Iran, Iraq, Turkey, Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Egypt will be the main participants in the Tehran meeting over the weekend.
Meanwhile, Arab League Secretary-General Amr Moussa has also expressed his willingness to attend the meeting.
