Restoration of Iran-Saudi diplomatic ties will facilitate limited deconfliction


Restoration of Iran-Saudi diplomatic ties will facilitate limited deconfliction

Officials from Iran and Saudi Arabia on 10 March signed an agreement to re-establish formal diplomatic relations within the next two months, restoring formal ties severed in 2016. The breakthrough follows nearly two years of tentative talks and will ease the ability of both states – which will remain rivals – to deconflict on geopolitical and security issues. While the restoration of formal relations is likely to facilitate follow-on accords, such as a peace deal in Yemen, it is highly unlikely to lead to a broader reduction in the geopolitical and security rivalry between the two.
