Oman, Iran share interest in boosting regional security: Omani FM

The Sultan of Oman’s meeting with Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei reflects a mutual interest in fostering closer relations and taking joint actions to improve regional security.

Oman’s Foreign Minister Sayyid Badr Albusaidi made the remarks on Monday after Sultan Haitham bin Tariq al-Said met with Ayatollah Khamenei in Tehran earlier in the day.

“The meeting….reflects the shared eagerness to strengthen the historically-rooted relations between the two countries, mutual trust, and joint action for anything that enhances the pillars of regional coexistence, security, coordination, and peace,” Albusaidi said in a message posted on Twitter in Arabic.

Ayatollah Khamenei told his guest that Iran and Oman will both benefit from closer bilateral cooperation, which he said was especially important as the two countries share the Strait of Hormuz, a strategic waterway linking the Persian Gulf with the Gulf of Oman.

Sultan Haitham, who had been on a two-day visit to Iran upon the invitation of President Ebrahim Raisi, departed Tehran on Monday after meeting the Supreme Leader.
