The two meetings were held separately in Iran’s Embassy in Oman’s capital.
Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian met with his Omani counterpart Sayyid Badr Albusaidi and lead Yemeni negotiator Mohammad Abdulsalam separately on Wednesday during a trip to Muscat.
The meetings took place in the Islamic Republic’s embassy in the Omani capital.
Earlier reports suggested that Saudi Arabia has asked Iran to mediate negotiations between Riyadh and Sanaa to reach a peace settlement and end the war on Yemen.
The Sultanate of Oman has been increasing its efforts to stop the aggression against Yemen and lift the unlawful siege imposed on the country by mediating a peace deal between Sanaa and Riyadh.
In April, a Saudi delegation flew to Sanaa, the same week as a major prisoner swap that freed nearly 900 detainees. However, due to Western obstruction, Saudi and Yemeni negotiators failed to agree on a new truce.
But last Saturday, the first commercial flight from Sanaa to Saudi Arabia in around 8 years took off carrying Yemeni pilgrims, signaling a breakthrough in the peace talks.
The flight is the first since Sanaa’s airport was closed by the coalition blockade in August 2016. Two more flights departed on Monday and Tuesday, officials confirmed.
In the recent months, relations between Iran and the Kingdom have been revived and ties were reestablished following several mediation sessions by Iraq and Oman, which were concluded by China’s President Xi Jinping.
Amir-Abdollahian arrived in the Sultanate coming from Qatar, after having held talks with the Qatari Emir and his counterpart earlier on Wednesday.
Iran’s top diplomat received the Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan on Saturday in Tehran, where both parties agreed to form joint political and economic committees.
Bin Farhan headed a high-ranking delegation to hold talks with Iranian officials regarding bilateral ties between Iran and Saudi Arabia. During his visit, the Saudi Foreign Minister reopened his country’s embassy almost 8 years after it was closed over strained ties.
Bin Farhan described Iran and Saudi Arabia as two important countries of the region, underlining that “the relations between the two countries are established based on basic principles such as mutual respect and non-interference in (each other’s) internal affairs and respect for the UN Charter.”
It is noteworthy that Tehran reopened its embassy in Riyadh in early June, some three months after the two sides agreed to reestablish bilateral relations.
