Iran and Saudi Arabia appeared to have made progress in their efforts to repair ties as three Iranian diplomats have been granted visas to be based in the Saudi city of Jeddah.

Speaking to reporters alongside his Iraqi counterpart, Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian said Baghdad-brokered talks with the kingdom had gone well, and officials in Riyadh responded positively to “constructive proposals” made by Tehran.
