Muscat: His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud, Crown Prince, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defence in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) will visit the Sultanate of Oman this Monday, December 6, 2021.
This came in a statement issued on by Diwan of Royal Court, reading as follows: “In affirmation of the ties of fraternity and kinship, and the historic relations binding the Sultanate of Oman and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) and, in culmination of the Royal visit of His Majesty Sultan Haitham Bin Tarik to the KSA last July 2021 and his meeting with the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud of the KSA, HRH Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud, KSA Crown Prince, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defence will pay a visit to the Sultanate of Oman with effect from Monday, 6 December 2021.
The visit will explore diverse areas that serve interests of the two countries and meet aspirations of their peoples towards further prosperous future.
May Allah the Almighty bless the leaderships of the Sultanate of Oman and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with success for the good of their people and the Arab and Muslim nations!
The Sultanate of Oman and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia continue boosting and developing their deep-rooted relations in the various spheres for the interest of the people of the two countries, under the leadership of His Majesty Sultan Haitham Bin Tarik and the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Within this context comes the visit of HRH Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud, to the Sultanate as well as the visit His Majesty Sultan Haitham Bin Tarik made, last July, to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia wherein a number of agreements were signed mainly the one on establishment of the Omani-Saudi Joint Coordination Council between the governments of the two countries.
Through the Omani-Saudi Joint Coordination Council, the two countries will coordinate and consult on a number of issues of common concern in all spheres and on expanding cooperation horizons and would sign a number of agreements and Memoranda of Understanding for the interests of both the countries.
During the past 50 years, the two countries have contributed to building brotherly relations in several fields including the agreement on demarcation of the joint borders between the two countries, signed in March 1990.
The cooperation and the strong ties between the two countries have shown in the GCC Summit (Sultan Qaboos, Sheikh Sabah Summit) held last January.
The summit had stressed the necessity for enhancement of the regional and international role of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) through development of the strategic partnerships among the GCC and other countries and regional and international organisations for the joint interests and through enhancement of the military integration under the supervision of the Joint Defence Council and the Supreme Defence Committee and the Common Military Command of the GCC in order to face any challenges.
The visit of HRH Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud, Crown Prince, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defence in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) to the Sultanate would, no doubt, review a number of issues of common concern, the economic relations between the two countries and a n umber of regional issues.
