Why Would the King of Saudi Arabia Visit Iran?

Since the news broke out of the visit to Iran of Malek Saud, the king of Saudi Arabia, various assumptions could have been made. Some believed that this visit is merely to establish a friendly relationship and develop further alliances between the two countries of Iran and Arabia. However, bits and pieces of information currently indicate that the king’s intention to visit Iran, in the current situation, has a particular reason.

Payk-e Iran’s investigation through reliable sources has revealed that in this visit the king of Saudi Arabia intends to ask the authorities in charge to intensify their campaign against the Baha’is.
