World and Saudi Leaders Congratulate the New President of Iran

Masoud Pezeshkian was congratulated on becoming the president of Iran by Saudi King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, according to official news agency SPA.

After years of protests and sanctions putting pressure on the Islamic Republic, reformist candidate Masoud Pezeshkian defeated hard-liner Saeed Jalili in Saturday’s runoff presidential election. Pezeshkian promised to lessen enforcement of the nation’s mandatory headscarf legislation and reach out to the West.

In Friday’s election, heart surgeon and veteran politician Pezeshkian garnered 16.3 million votes against Jalili’s 13.5 million.

In the SPA statement, King Salman stated, “We look forward to deepening the relations between our countries and peoples, and to cooperating to enhance regional and international security and peace.”

The monarch expressed his hopes for the Iranian people’s continued development and prosperity.

“I affirm my keenness on developing and deepening the relations that unite our countries and peoples and serve our mutual interests,” declared Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
In March 2023, Iran and Saudi Arabia inked a historic agreement to restore relations, mediated by China.

Officials from both sides have since kept up their ongoing ties-building discussions.
