HRM Saudi Crown Prince Naïf bin Abdel Aziz met with Iranian Intelligence Minister Heydar Moslehi on Monday at a time of strained relations between both countries, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.
Riyadh has accused Tehran of interfering in neighboring Arab states and warned that its nuclear program could pose a threat to regional security.

Tension between the two countries escalated further following US accusations of an alleged Iranian plot to kill the Saudi envoy to Washington. Tehran has denied the charge.

Naïf, who is also the Saudi Interior Minister, discussed "questions of common interest" with the Iranian official, SPA said, without disclosing details.

The Saudi Intelligence Chief, Mogran bin Abdul Aziz, took part in the meeting, the agency reported.

On December 5, the former Saudi Intelligence Chief, Prince Turki al-Faisal, said Saudi Arabia may consider acquiring nuclear weapons to match regional rivals Israel and Iran.
