Iranian President Seyyed Ebrahim Raeisi will leave Tehran for Muscat on Monday for talks on expanding bilateral economic, political and cultural relations.

The one-day visit will take place at the invitation of Oman’s Sultan Haitham bin Tariq al-Said, according to president.ir.

On the visit’s agenda are holding a meeting with the sultan of Oman, signing a number of cooperation documents, and meeting Iranians nationals residing in the Arab state as well as Omani traders and businessmen.

The Oman visit will be the first trip by the Iranian president to the Arab country and his fifth foreign visit after taking office in August 2021.

A few days ago, a 50-member delegation comprising Iranian traders and businessmen visited Oman to prepare the ground for the development of bilateral economic and trade ties.

Since taking office, Raeisi has emphasized the need for more trade and economic cooperation with Arab countries in the Persian Gulf.

His administration has reached major agreements with Qatar while trade delegates have also been dispatched to the UAE in recent months to explore increasing economic ties.

Figures by the Islamic Republic of Iran Customs Administration show trade between Teheran and Muscat reached $1.33 billion over the Persian calendar year to late March, indicating an increase of 53 percent year-on-year.

Commenting on Raeisi’s upcoming visit, Iranian Ambassador to Oman Ali Najafi told IRNA on Saturday that relations between Tehran and Muscat are very favorable in different sectors.

He added that ties are based on the principle of good neighborliness as well as historical and cultural commonalities.

The envoy said the two countries have no problem in their neighborly ties.

He described as considerable the two sides’ capacities for expanding economic relations, expressing satisfaction with the growing trend reflected by bilateral trade ties.
