  • Iran, Oman FMs hold talks on bilateral, regional issues

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has held talks with his Omani counterpart, Yusuf bin Alawi, on bilateral relations and regional developments.

According to Press TV, Zarif sat down with bin Alawi in Tehran on Saturday, the second such meeting in recent months. The top Omani diplomat has paid an official visit to Tehran in May.

Last week, Oman’s Foreign Ministry announced that bin Alawi's trip is within the framework of Tehran-Muscat ties as well as their consultations on bilateral issues and recent developments in the region.

In May, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Political Affairs Abbas Araqchi met with bin Alawi bin Abdullah in Muscat, rejecting claims about the beginning of negotiations between the Islamic Republic and the United States with the goal of reducing tensions between the two sides.
