Bilateral, Regional Issues Discussed With Oman

Deputy Foreign Minister Morteza Sarmadi on Tuesday held talks with Omani Foreign Minister Yusuf bin Alawi in Muscat on a range of issues.
The two diplomats discussed the latest regional developments and ways of expanding bilateral relations.
They also expressed the political will of the two countries to enhance political, economic and cultural ties, and to present it as a successful model for other neighbors, Tasnim News Agency reported.
Sarmadi and bin Alawi also reached an agreement on a timetable for pursuing Tehran-Muscat cooperation.
Back in February, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif had voiced Tehran's readiness to strengthen relations with Oman in all fields.
"Oman is a good and reliable neighbor for Iran. We will maintain relations in all fields and see no ceiling for these ties," Zarif said at a joint press conference with bin Alawi in Tehran on February 20.
Iran and Oman share age-old and close diplomatic, economic and military ties.
Oman's Sultan Qaboos played an important role in facilitating the early stages of nuclear talks between Iran and P5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain and France, plus Germany), which led to a nuclear deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action in July 2015.
