Muslim-majority states prefer to pursue neutrality in their foreign policy. Many believe this is because they simply oppose liberal ideology. However, closer examination of their modern strategic foreign policy reveals a more nuanced, practical and multipolar approach.
In nearly 100 years of their diplomatic history Iran and Saudi Arabia have enjoyed at least three longer periods of friendly relations.
