Tehran, IRNA — The Islamic Republic of Iran and Bahrain have agreed to establish the necessary mechanisms to discuss how to resume political ties.

Bahrain Foreign Minister Abdullatif bin Rashid al-Zayani arrived in Tehran on Sunday to take part in the Asia Cooperation Dialogue (ACD) summit which is being held on June 23-24.

Iranian Acting Foreign Minister Ali Bagheri Kani met with Bahrain’s top diplomat Al Zayani on the first day of the two-day summit.

Following the meeting, the two countries released a statement reaching an agreement to begin talks aimed at restoring political relations between the two countries.

The bilateral talks took place within the framework of the historical fraternal relations between the kingdom of Bahrain and the Islamic Republic of Iran, the statement read.
