Raisi Says Iran, Oman Eager to Expand Ties, Underlines Investment in Energy Sector

SHANA (Tehran) – Iran’s President Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi on Tuesday said Tehran and Muscat are determined to revitalize and develop their relations.

The president added that a comprehensive plan and a vision of future are needed to achieve the goal.

During his Monday’s meeting with Omani Sultan Haitham bin Tariq Al Said, Raisi said Iran and its neighboring country Oman have amicable relations.

The political trust between the two countries has now entered a new stage, continued the visiting president.

He referred to the meetings of Iranian petroleum as well as roads and urban development ministers in Muscat and said the roadmaps should be outlined as soon as possible to put words into action.

To exemplify the sectors that are fit for investments, Raisi named the energy sector.

The president urged the Iranian and Omani economists to identify the two countries’ capacities to help boost bilateral ties.

He urged the establishment of an Iranian trade center in Oman as the first stride toward the identification of the two neighboring countries’ potentials.

Raisi expressed his satisfaction with the expansion of relations during the recent months.

Since taking office in August, Ebrahim Raeisi has emphasized the need for more trade and economic cooperation with Arab countries in the Persian Gulf.

His administration has reached major agreements with Qatar while trade delegates have been dispatched to the United Arab Emirates and Oman in recent months to explore increased economic ties with those states.

The sultan of Oman, for his part, said the two sides should renew some of their previous agreements and also outline plans for new ones.

The Oman-Iran trade volume is far from the level the two countries’ political ties, he regretted, stressing the need that the two neighbors should sign new agreements and boost their trade ties.

Iran and Oman inked 12 documents and memorandum of understanding to cooperate in energy, political, transportation, trade, economic, scientific, environmental, and sport sectors.

The documents were signed by Iranian petroleum, foreign, industry, mining and trade, roads and urban development ministers, as well as the country’s Trade Promotion Organization head and their Omani counterparts.
