Oman Backs Efforts to Promote Regional Peace, Security

Oman Foreign Minister Sayyid Badr Albusaidi stated that his country supports any measures that can help secure peace and security in the region. 
“Oman always adopts the policy of good neighborliness and positive cooperation,” Albusaidi said in a joint press conference following his meeting with Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian in Tehran on Saturday, ISNA reported.
The top Omani diplomat also underscored maritime security in the region, “since safety in trade and economy will eventually be in the interest of regional nations.”
“This will be in the service of our partnerships and foreign relations,” he noted. 
He pointed to the many challenges facing countries in the Middle East and said the only way to solve problems was to collectively discuss them and find peaceful ways to sort them out. 
“The only way to solve these problems and challenges is through dialogue and understanding,” he stated. 
In response to recent terrorist attacks in Iran, Albusaidi spoke out against terrorism and violence and said reasons behind such violent acts needed to be investigated.
Albusaidi concluded his remarks by inviting his counterpart to Muscat for negotiations on regional peace and security. 



Foreign Intervention 

During the joint press conference, Amir-Abdollahian said that countries in the Middle East were more than capable of securing peace and security. 
“The presence of foreign military forces is a threat to regional peace and security,” the official said, adding that these forces were also threatening the Persian Gulf and energy security in the region. 
According to Amir-Abdollahian, foreign sea drones in the Persian Gulf were adding to security problems faced by Iran and neighbors. 
The minister noted that Tehran-Muscat relations were based on the three principles of “friendship, brotherly love and honesty.”
Referring to a recent meeting between President Ebrahim Raisi and Sultan of Oman Haitham bin Tariq Al Said in May, Amir-Abdollahian said they were implementing measures that were decided on during that visit.
“We’re witnessing increasing growth in economy and trade in bilateral ties,” he said.
Amir-Abdollahian expressed gratitude toward Oman for its role in trying to lift unjust sanctions against Iran.
“We value Oman’s efforts to reach the final steps of the agreement,” the minister said.
Omani officials have facilitated talks between Tehran and western countries to revive the 2015 nuclear accord, so far to no avail.
