The EU and Saudi Arabia signed a cooperation agreement, the bloc's foreign policy chief said on Sunday.

Josep Borrell said on Twitter that he signed with Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister Faisal bin Farhan a cooperation arrangement to reinforce ties through regular consultations on political, socio-economic, security, and other topics.

"With 1st ever #HumanRights dialogue this week it shows positive dynamics in our partnership," Borrell added, referring to the meeting held in the Saudi capital Riyadh.

As part of his first tour to the Gulf region, Borrell went to Saudi Arabia after visiting Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.
