  • Description

    The Shah of Iran arrived in Saudi Arabia's capital, Riyadh, on Monday (28 April) at the start of a two-day state visit which could set the guidelines for future relations between Gulf states.

    Formal talks began at the Guest Palace soon after the Shah's arrival. He was accompanied by a high-level delegation, including Iranian Foreign Minister Abbasali Khalatbari.

    On the Saudi side king Khalid was joined by a number of top officials, including Crown Prince and Interior Minister Prince Fahd and Defence Minister Prince Sultan.

    The Shah's visit falls into a pattern of travel by Gulf leaders in the area recently, which is strategically important to both the Soviet Union and to western industrial states.

    The Shah and Saudi Arabia's leaders discussed bilateral relations and how these affect the Gulf area, and the Arab-Israeli dispute.
