Omani Foreign Minister
Yusuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah has called for new talks with Iran in efforts to address and resolve ongoing problems in the Middle East.
"Iran has good relations with the (Persian) Gulf Cooperation Council (P)GCC. We are witnessing steady cooperation (between the two sides)," Fars news agency quoted bin Alawi as saying on Thursday, Press TV reported.
He praised deep-rooted civilization of Iran as a neighboring country and called for enhanced ties with the Islamic Republic in various fields.
The main priority of Oman's foreign policy is based on establishing relations with countries based on dialogue and mutual respect, said bin Abdullah.
Iran's Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki is scheduled to pay an official visit to the Omani capital of Muscat next week to attend joint economic summits and hold talks with senior Omani officials.
