PMO News Portal - The Sultan of Oman, Haitham bin Tariq,
issued a decree approving a cooperation agreement with Iran in the field of
maritime transport, which was signed in 2020 between the two countries.
In February 2020, Iran and Oman signed an agreement to
expand cooperation in the fields of freight transport, maritime trade and
reciprocal use of the two countries' ports, in addition to bilateral trade
cooperation in the high seas.
The Sultan of Oman's order to implement the agreement came
after talks between the two countries' officials in Muscat to activate maritime
co-operation, while the two countries also stressed the need to strengthen
co-operation in regional and international transport and transit.
Iran and Oman also agreed to form a joint committee to
develop maritime transport between the two sides.
The two sides agreed to follow up on the agreements signed
between the two countries. On Monday, an Iranian delegation consisting of
representatives of 30 private sector companies and representatives of the Ports
and Maritime Organization traveled to Oman to review the strengthening of
cooperation between the two countries.
