China successfully mediated the diplomatic dispute between Iran and Saudi Arabia, emphasizing its commitment to promoting stability in the Middle East. The high-level talks, facilitated by China, led to a historic meeting between the top ambassadors of the Iran and Saudia after more than seven years.
The talks resulted in a mutual agreement to restore diplomatic ties and resume embassy operations, which could potentially lead to a reduction in regional tensions and the resolution of long-standing proxy conflicts and the conflict in Yemen.
China’s foreign policy is based on key principles such as sovereignty and territorial integrity, non-interference, peaceful development, win-win cooperation, multilateralism, and the Belt and Road Initiative. The recent meeting between Iran and Saudi Arabia facilitated by China is a clear example of how China is pursuing its foreign policy, striving to maintain friendly and cooperative relations with both countries and playing a mediating role in resolving disputes in the region. China’s engagement in the region could offer an alternative source of political and economic influence, potentially promoting regional stability and autonomy by reducing overdependence on Western powers.
Chinese Foreign Minister Qin Gang met with the foreign ministers of Saudi Arabia and Iran and expressed China’s support for the elimination of foreign interference and the future of the region and the Middle East. This indicates the growing alliances between China and the Middle East, which could have positive effects on the region, particularly through the Belt and Road Initiative, which can increase global trade and stimulate economic growth.
The successful mediation of the diplomatic dispute by China sends a clear message to the world that China is committed to promoting stability in the Middle East as well as an alliance. It is a constructive contribution that can affect the world, particularly with the ongoing change in global dynamics.
