The Foreign Ministers also discussed the latest condition of the agreement signed between Iran and Saudi Arabia in Beijing on March 10 on the normalisation of diplomatic relations and reopening of the embassies and missions within two months, Xinhua news agency reported.

This was the third phone conversation between the two top diplomats in the past weeks following the signing of the agreement, according to the Iranian Foreign Ministry's website.

The Ministry, however, did not specify the date and venue of the upcoming meeting.

In another phone conversation in late March, the two Foreign Ministers had exchanged views on holding their bilateral meeting in the fasting month of Ramadan, which will end in late April.
