On Sunday, high-level officials from Iran and Oman got together to sign four different treaties, with the goal of boosting their collaboration in a range of different areas.
In controversy is certain documentation that was signed by the Sultan of Oman, Haitham bin Tariq Al Said, when he was on official business in Tehran.
In addition to free zones, Tehran and Muscat have reached an agreement to expand their collaboration in the areas of economy, energy, and investment.
The documents were signed by the Iranian ministries of petroleum, economic affairs, and finance, as well as the secretary-general of the Supreme Council of Free Commerce-Industrial and Special Economic Zones and the Omani ministry of Energy, finance, and Commerce.
The Supreme Council of Free Trade-Industrial and Special Economic Zones secretary-general signed them.
During a news conference with his Omani counterpart, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian reportedly claimed that in addition to the four documents, the leaders of Iran and Oman want to conclude a comprehensive strategic cooperation deal in the near future. This was reported by news TV.
According to Amirabdollahian, the volume of commerce that takes place between Iran and Oman has more than doubled since President Ebrahim Raisi paid a visit to Muscat in May of the previous year. During this trip, 12 cooperation contracts were inked.
He expressed his hope that the latest agreements on cooperation will provide an additional boost to the already expanding trade that takes place between the two countries.
