TEHRAN – The new ambassador of Saudi Arabia to Tehran held talks with Hashemi Rafsanjani, the chairman of the Expediency Council, on Monday.
In this meeting Rafsanjani said if Iran and Saudi Arabia coordinate their efforts in the region and the Islamic world the seditionists will not find an opportunity to sow discord between different sects of Islam.
Rafsanjani said in his last trip to Saudi Arabia he proposed the establishment of a committee comprising Shia and Sunni scholars.
He said if his suggestion was taken seriously in the two countries the extremists could not create schism between Muslims through suicide attacks.
For his part, the ambassador renewed the Saudi king’s invitation to Rafsanjani to visit the Saudi kingdom.
The Saudi diplomat also praised the approach of Hassan Rouhani’s government, saying his government’s policy has had positive results in Saudi Arabia and other Islamic states.
