Saudi-Iran Security Pact to be Signed Next Sunday
Saudi Interior Minister Prince Nayef bin AbdelAziz will visit Tehran next Sunday to sign a security pact with the Islamic republic, reported the official IRNA news agency on Monday.
The security accord was originally due to be inked in February, but was delayed for unknown reasons, said IRNA.
Earlier this month, Prince Nayef said the accord, which has taken two years of negotiations, focuses on the fight against crime, terrorism and money laundering, and surveillance of borders and territorial waters.
The deal is a purely security agreement and has no military dimension concerning security in the Arabian Gulf, he said in January.
During his visit, the Saudi minister will hold talks with President Mohammed Khatami and other senior officials, said the agency – Albawaba.com
