Saudi Arabia plans for fresh round of talks with Iran, says foreign minister

Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister said on Saturday the kingdom was looking to schedule a fifth round of direct talks with Iran despite a “lack of substantive progress” in previous rounds.

Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud, speaking at the Munich Security Conference, also voiced hope there was a serious desire by Iran to find a “new modus operandi” in the region.

Sunni Muslim Saudi Arabia and Shi‘ite Iran are locked in several proxy conflicts around the region, including in Yemen.
