“Historical visit” – Iran’s ex-Crown Prince Reza Pahlavi travels to Israel

Date:

He wants to “revive the ancient bond between Iran and Israel for the benefit of the nations.” For this reason, the ex-Crown Prince of Iran, Reza Pahlavi, who lives in exile in the US, will travel to Israel. Information Minister Gila Gamliel, who will receive the former heir to the throne, speaks of a “historic visit”.

He was therefore the “highest-ranking Iranian personality to ever pay a public visit to Israel”. The program in Israel includes meetings with government representatives and a visit to the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial in Jerusalem. Since the Islamic revolution of 1979, after which the former monarch’s son was unable to return to his homeland, Israel has been regarded as Tehran’s nemesis. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also describes Iran as the “main enemy”.

Pahlavi has rarely spoken publicly in the past. However, since the start of the women-led protest movement in Iran last year, the 62-year-old has appeared more prominently calling for a democratic Iran. Pahlavi sees parallels between the current demonstrations and the Islamic revolution that led to the overthrow of his father, the last Shah of Persia, in 1979. The former crown prince said a few weeks ago that there were only “a few weeks or months” left for the “final collapse” in Iran.

Rapprochement between Iran and Saudi Arabia
Meanwhile, Iran’s rapprochement with regional rival Saudi Arabia is on the horizon. The state leadership in Tehran has invited King Salman. An invitation previously sent by the kingdom to Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi was accepted. Initially, nothing was known about the date of the planned state visit.

After a meeting of the foreign ministers of both countries in China, which brokered the rapprochement, the regional powers want to reopen their embassies in the other countries as a next step.
