RIYADH — Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and his delegation touched down in Riyadh on Saturday to partake in the Joint Arab Islamic Extraordinary Summit.

Welcomed at King Khalid International Airport by Deputy Governor of Riyadh Region Prince Mohammed Bin Abdulrahman, Saudi Ambassador to Iran Abdullah Al-Anzi, Iranian Ambassador to the Kingdom Dr. Alireza Enayati, and various officials, this marks the first visit of an Iranian president to the Kingdom in over a decade.

Notably, diplomatic relations between Saudi Arabia and Iran were reinstated in March 2023, leading to the exchange of diplomatic missions and the reopening of embassies in both capitals.

Raisi is slated to participate in the extraordinary joint Arab-Islamic summit in Riyadh, convened in response to the situation in Gaza.

The summit aims to underscore the significance of consolidating efforts and presenting a unified stance that reflects the joint Arab-Islamic will concerning the serious and unprecedented developments in Gaza and the Palestinian territories.
