Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif told a World Economic Forum panel on Friday that he had met Saudi Prince Turki, an influential former intelligence chief and an outspoken critic of President Obama’s Iran policy, earlier that day in Davos. (Reuters, 25 January)
“We want good relations with our neighbors. People should not be concerned,” Zarif told the panel.
The Zarif-Turki meeting is the highest-level gathering between Iranian and Saudi officials since Rouhani came to power.
