Saudi Arabia and Iran have held a security dialogue session in Amman at the level of experts, the state news agency of Jordan, Petra, reported on Monday.

The session, hosted by the Arab Institute for Security Studies, discussed confidence-building measures, specifically regarding Iran‘s nuclear program, the agency added. The session ended on Monday.

There was no immediate confirmation from either side.

The Sunni Muslim kingdom of Saudi Arabia and mainly Shiite Muslim Iran are regional rivals and back different sides in the Yemeni conflict and elsewhere.
