Iran and Saudi Arabia agree to restore relations but what is the role of China

4 min read


Iran and Saudi Arabia are restoring their diplomatic relations after a long time.
Having such an agreement between the two countries in China is a big achievement for China.
This step is being seen as a success of China at the international level.

Consider some international political equations of some time ago. Iran and Saudi Arabia have been at loggerheads for a long time. Saudi Arabia has normal relations with America but very good relations with China. The US is Iran’s archenemy, but bitter relations with China have bordered on the level of hostility. Iran and China are close. One of these big changes has come, Iran and Saudi Arabia have taken steps to improve relations with each other and it has been told that China has a big role in this. There is a lot of hue and cry on this issue on social media as well. It remains to be seen what color China’s role can bring in this.

What happened?
Iran and Saudi Arabia have agreed to restore each other’s diplomatic ties and open each other’s embassies in the two countries within two months while holding talks in China. Iran’s state media has released pictures and videos of Ali Shemkhani, secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, in which he is seen with Saudi National Security Advisor Musad bin Mohammad Al Aiban and senior Chinese diplomat Wang Yi.

what did china say
Iran’s Razaki television has said that after the decision is implemented, the foreign ministers of the two countries will meet to prepare for the exchange of ambassadors. In this footage, Wang wholeheartedly congratulated the wise move of the two countries. Wang said that the two countries have shown seriousness and understanding, which China fully supports.

how much can be expected
In international circles, it is being seen as a good but big beginning. Although it is also true that it may be too early to make any big decisions regarding this, but bringing both the countries on the same platform for talks is no less a big achievement. With this, there is a possibility of new light being born in the direction of peace in the Middle East.

beat america
If seen strategically, it can be said that by getting this done, China has grabbed some points from America. Where America has some or the other role in every dispute in the world because it is the world’s biggest superpower, America’s contribution in this matter is zero even far away. It is believed that this will increase the stature of China at the international level. And now many people are also saying that China is in talks with both Russia and Ukraine, so it can help solve the Ukraine crisis.

Middle East equations will change
There is a lot more to happen of which this is only the beginning and it will be interesting to watch the sequence of events to come. If Iran and Saudi Arabia come closer, which is not impossible now, many equations in the Middle East will change. Iran’s power will increase and America’s supremacy as well because America is already trying to come closer to Saudi Arabia. In such a situation, Saudi Arabia’s proximity to Iran can also be a blow for it.

bad for america
Saudi Arabia’s going further away from America will be harmful for America because it will only increase the distance of OPEC countries from America, which Russia is not fully supporting America in Ukraine war. Many times America has requested these countries to change oil production to affect oil prices, which these countries have rejected. On the other hand, America will never consider the increasing influence of China in the Middle East as a good sign for itself.

Right now there are many regional challenges in the Middle East. Iran and Saudi Arabia are bitter rivals in Yemen, Lebanon and Syria where military conflicts are still ongoing in one form or another. Saudi Arabia severed ties with Iran in 2016. While Saudi is a Sunni majority country, Iran is said to represent a Shia country. In this way, the root cause of tension between the two countries is the Shia-Sunni conflict. The entire Middle East is divided in this matter. But many countries including Iran-Arab now seem fed up with the military conflict.
