There has been a breakthrough in tense relations between Iran and Saudi Arabia that will have a positive impact on all regional issues, Iranian Ambassador to Lebanon Ghazanfar Roknabadi said Wednesday.There have been reports in the past that Saudi Arabia had invited Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to visit the kingdom.While Saudi Arabia supports the Future Movement and its March 14 allies, Iran backs the Hezbollah-led March 8 alliance.Relations between regional heavyweights Saudi Arabia and Iran have been strained by policy differences, particularly over the 3-year-old war in Syria, where the two countries support opposing sides. Any thaw in Saudi-Iranian ties would also help in facilitating holding the Lebanese presidential election on time.
