Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has sent letters to Saudi King Salman about regional peace, the Iranian administration’s spokesman says.
In comments at a Monday press conference in Tehran, Ali Rabiei said President Rouhani has sent letters on regional peace to Saudi Arabia’s king Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.
“The basis of the letters has been regional peace and stability,” he noted.
“We believe that multiple bilaterals could be shaped in the region, and the US pressures should not take the neighbours away from each other,” Rabiei added.
On Saturday, Iran’s Foreign Ministry confirmed that President Rouhani has sent separate letters to the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC) Member States and Iraq.
“After the honourable President of the Islamic Republic of Iran put forward the ‘Hormuz Peace Endeavour’ in this year’s United Nations General Assembly, he sent its full text to the heads of the aforementioned countries, and in the letter, he called for collective cooperation among all of them in processing and implementing it (the initiative),” Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abbas Mousavi said.
