Reuters, Sunday 5 Aug 2018

Saudi Arabia has agreed to admit an Iranian diplomat to head an office representing Iranian interests in the kingdom, the official Iranian news agency IRNA reported on Sunday, in a rare move after the two rivals broke relations in 2016.

"An informed diplomatic source said Sunday that Saudi Arabia had agreed to grant a visa to the head ... of Iran's interests section," IRNA reported. "Observers saw this... as a positive diplomatic step in the Tehran-Riyadh relations."

The office is expected to be set up within the Swiss diplomatic mission in Saudi Arabia, based on an agreement signed in 2017.
