The Syrian Foreign Minister, Faisal Miqdad, praised the Sultanate of Oman greatly for what he described as the wise stances of the Gulf state towards Damascus.
This came during a meeting between Al-Miqdad, the Sultanate of Oman’s permanent representative to the United Nations, Muhammad bin Awad Al-Hassan, on the sidelines of the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
Faisal Miqdad praises the Sultanate of Oman
In this context, Al-Miqdad said that the Omani government’s stances towards Syria and regional issues reflect “wisdom and moderation” and that the Sultanate is “a country worthy of respect.”
He added that the Syrian Prime Time Zone have the utmost affection and appreciation for the Omani Prime Time Zone.
On the other hand, the meeting of “Al-Miqdad” and “Al-Hassan” witnessed discussions on bilateral relations between the two countries, and a review of investment opportunities in various fields.
It is worth noting that in October 2020, the Sultanate of Oman returned its ambassador to Damascus, becoming the first Gulf country to restore its diplomatic representation at the ambassadorial level.
Meanwhile, the UAE and Bahrain reopened their embassies in Damascus, at the end of 2018, at the level of charge d’affaires.
Sultan of Oman is the first Gulf leader to congratulate Assad on his re-election
It is noteworthy that last May, Sultan Haitham bin Tariq, Sultan of Oman, sent a congratulatory message to the President of the Syrian regime, Bashar al-Assad, on the occasion of his re-election as president of the country for a new presidential term.
At the time, this was considered the first congratulations from a Gulf leader to the head of the regime after his re-election.

Although the Sultanate of Oman reduced its representation in Damascus due to the Syrian crisis 10 years ago, it became the first Arab and Gulf country to return its full diplomatic representation to Syria.
The Sultanate returned its ambassador to Damascus in October 2020.
