Contributing sentiments towards policy:

62% : On the contrary, we want Iran to grow and prosper," the crown prince said, noting their joint "interests" to "push the region and the world toward prosperity."
61% : "Iran is a neighboring country, and all we aspire for is a good and special relationship with Iran," Crown Prince Mohammed, the kingdom's de-facto ruler, said in a 90-minute interview on Saudi state TV.
55% : On Thursday, Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman welcomed a "dialogue-oriented approach," saying in a statement to Iranian media that "Iran and Saudi Arabia ... can enter a new chapter of interaction and cooperation to achieve peace, stability, and regional development by overcoming differences."
55% : The olive branch comes weeks after Saudi Arabia and Iran held their first direct talks in years in Iraq, where their spheres of influence collide.
51% : According to Gulf diplomatic sources, Yemen was among the main topics discussed by Saudi Arabia and Iran in Baghdad this month.
51% : Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi, who maintains ties with both Riyadh and Tehran, helped broker the recent talks.
50% : It remains unclear, however, whether Tehran holds enough sway over the Houthis, a Yemeni ethnic group with a fierce independent streak.
48% : In the Saudi TV interview, citing among other differences Iran's "negative behavior," such as its support for armed proxies, Crown Prince Mohammed also said, "We really hope we would overcome them and build a good and positive relationship with Iran that would benefit all."
48% : "The failure of this more confrontational policy is probably leading to some rethinking in Riyadh, but the new U.S. administration's outreach to Iran is a driving factor" in Riyadh's new approach.
47% : "If they start getting into a practical dialogue, the most obvious place to start is where other Gulf countries have already begun discussions with Iran: maritime security," says Hussein Ibish, senior scholar at the Washington-based Arab Gulf States Institute.
44% : It was a stark change in tone from someone who three years ago called Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, "the new Hitler," and ruled out dialogue and cooperation with Iran as "appeasement."
43% : "The confrontational policy with Iran really hasn't worked," says F. Gregory Gause, head of the international affairs department at Texas A&M University.
43% : Observers and officials agree that, while not a peace, detente and dialogue between Saudi Arabia and Iran, no matter how modest, could offer a pathway to progress.
41% : It is believed that Riyadh is asking Tehran to withdraw support from the Houthis and push it to agree to a cease-fire and negotiations.
41% : "There is a lot that can be done to get dialogue going to reduce tensions, to mitigate misunderstandings, and for Saudi Arabia and Iran to reassure each other that they can in fact live together," says Mr. Ibish, "even in competition."
40% : Some say the new tone reeks of Saudi desperation to wind down its military entanglements; others call it a shrewd reading of the Biden administration's diplomatic engagement with Iran.
40% : But while indicating a Saudi shift away from a confrontational policy toward Iran that has failed to achieve its goals, the conciliatory tone and talks signal something deeper: an understanding that the two rivals can exist side by side, even if they don't agree.
40% : Over the last three years, Saudi royals have reversed a boycott on post-Saddam Hussein Iraq and have built ties with Shiite political leaders Riyadh saw as more independent from Tehran.
38% : Although Iran has supported the Houthis to drag Saudi Arabia deeper into a military quagmire, observers and analysts agree it has few stakes in Yemen, more than 1,000 miles away from Tehran and separated by multiple land and sea borders, and see the issue as an "acceptable concession."
38% : It remains unclear how a detente would play out in Syria, where Iran has propped up Bashar al-Assad's regime with its proxy Hezbollah, and where Turkey also holds sway.
37% : After six years of asymmetric warfare, proxy battles, and mutual recriminations, Saudi Arabia this week offered its bitter regional rival Iran something new: dialogue.
37% : The United States is spearheading a maritime security arrangement featuring Arab Gulf states that crucially excludes Iran.
35% : After Yemen, the more difficult subjects would be Iraq, Lebanon, and Syria - three Arab countries with significant Shiite populations where Iran has methodically nurtured armed non-state actors loyal to Tehran.
33% : It also comes six years after the crown prince and his father, King Salman, shifted the traditionally cautious, slow-moving kingdom to an aggressive foreign policy confronting Iran and its proxies in Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon.
30% : The country that could see the most immediate benefits from dialogue is Yemen, home to the world's worst humanitarian catastrophe, where Iran maintains links to a Houthi movement that has continued a bloody offensive despite a Saudi and United Nations-backed peace offer.
20% : The Persian Gulf and the narrow Strait of Hormuz, through which 25% of the world's oil is shipped, became a flashpoint of tensions from 2018 to 2020 under former President Donald Trump's maximum pressure campaign against Iran.
