Iran and Saudi Arabia will soon diplomats exchange, reported Tehran on Wednesday. The step suggests a possible defrosting in the relations between the regional rivals since the diplomatic ties last year were broken.

The Iranian Foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told the news agency ISNA that the visit can take place after the hajj-pilgrimage is ended in the first week of september.

The relations between Iran and Saudi Arabia are at a low point. Both countries accuse each other of them the regional security undermining and opposing sides in conflicts in Syria, Iraq and Yemen to support.

Iranian protesters stormed in January 2016, the Saudi embassy in Tehran after a prominent Saudi-shiite clergyman was executed. Riyadh closed the embassy.
