On his Twitter account, the director general of Bilateral Affairs at the Cuban Foreign Ministry, Emilio Lozada, lauded the beginning of contacts between the two countries.

In addition, he expressed his certainty about the role of these talks in contributing ‘to peace and stability, so necessary in the Middle East.’

on Monday, the spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry, Saeed Khatibzadeh, confirmed the contacts with Saudi Arabia, but assured that it was too early to reveal the details of what was discussed.

‘It is in the interests of both countries and the region to ease tensions and in the hopes of reaching a meaningful understanding that will help change the atmosphere,’ Khatibzadeh said.

Engaged in a struggle for dominance in the region, Tehran and Riyadh severed ties in 2016, after demonstrations in Iran against Saudi diplomatic missions protesting the execution of Shiite Clergyman Nimr al-Baqer Nimr in Saudi Arabia.

The ties between Saudi Arabia and the Islamic Republic reached full tension due to the conflicts in the region.
