Ali Akbar Salehi has said at a ceremony marking the 40th anniversary of the establishment of Iran-Oman relations, that the action plan (to ensure Persian Gulf security) would be the sole way of achieving lasting security in the region, reiterating that “such an important goal would be achieved only through collective participation of regional states free from foreign intervention.” Salehi added that 14 rounds of joint economic commission sessions were held with the Omani government, in addition to consultations in the context of strategic, political, military and scientific cooperation, indicating a foreign policy of both Iran and Oman to draw up common agenda. Salehi said the project for the transfer of gas from Iran to Oman and the agreement for transit cooperation would be the master key for future relations between the two countries, serving as a means of promoting economic cooperation, and added that setting up a direct air link between Muscat and Tehran would serve as a key factor for commercial and political ties.
