Discourse With Saudis Should be Without Preconditions

Tehran and Riyadh should hold talks without preconditions to resolve their disagreements as it will be in the interest of the two countries and the region at large, says a former official. 
"If Iran and Saudi Arabia see shortcomings in each other's foreign policy, they need to resolve it at the negotiating table without setting any preconditions," Sabah Zanganeh, Iran's former envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, told ISNA in an interview published Monday. 
He made the proposal after President Hassan Rouhani at the weekend called for improved relations with neighboring  states, including Saudi Arabia, while saying that the kingdom should reassess its behavior and put an end to the unwanted and unhelpful obstinacy. 
Riyadh severed diplomatic relations with Tehran in 2016 after its embassy in Tehran was stormed by protesters in response to the execution of Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr, a prominent Shia cleric.
