Iran should seize the opportunity provided by the toned-down rhetoric from Saudi and Emirati officials to mend strained bilateral relations, says a political analyst, who believes that the interests of Persian Gulf states lie in lasting peace and security in the region. 
"The change in the approaches of Saudi Arabia and the UAE toward Iran heralds the possibility of negotiations to resolve disagreements and defuse tensions over issues that have pitted Iran against these countries for years," Javid Montazeran wrote in a recent article published by the Iranian Diplomacy website.
