Baku, Azerbaijan, May 15
By Khalid Kazimov - Trend:
While planning to boost its economic ties with neighboring Iran, Oman is considering a plan to offer a special visa package to Iranian merchants as well as a port to Iranian goods.
Oman's Ambassador to Tehran Saud bin Ahmed bin Khalid al-Barwani has said that Muscat for the first time is planning to offer a port to Iran, Tasnim news agency reported.
Saud bin Ahmed bin Khalid al-Barwani underlined close and friendly ties between Tehran and Muscat and said that Oman has never provided any countries with such conditions.
The annual trade turnover between Iran and Oman has recently stood at about $400 million.
Oman played a key role in bringing Iran and the US together for nuclear talks, which ended in lifting economic sanctions on the Islamic Republic.
