Iran, Oman Stress Widening of Mutual Cooperation

In mid-April, Iran and its Southern neighboring country Oman agreed to finalize a cooperation pact on an offshore pipeline project.

Iran and Oman had for long been negotiating to produce LNG in its Qalhat liquefaction plant. The project involves piping gas from southern Iran to the Persian Gulf sultanate and liquefying it into LNG for shipments to international markets.

Back in early October 2017, Iranian and Omani officials in a meeting in Muscat underlined the need for the further expansion of mutual cooperation, especially in health areas.

During the meeting in the Omani capital, Head of Iran Trade Promotion Organization (TPO) Mojtaba Khosrotaj and Advisor for Omani Health Minister Sultan Al Busaidi explored avenues for bolstering and reinvigorating of bilateral ties, especially in health sector.
