The Sultan of Oman arrived in Saudi Arabia on Sunday. This is the first visit by an Oman ruler to Saudi Arabia in the past few years amid efforts to end the war in Yemen and the deepening economic crisis in Oman. Sultan Haitham bin Tariq Al Said arrives in Neom, a city on the Red Sea Coast of Saudi Arabia.
He was received by the powerful Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman. During his visit, Haitham will meet with the Saudi King and other senior leaders. Sultan Haitham is in Saudi Arabia on his first foreign visit since coming to power last year, which shows the importance of the two countries’ mutual interests and Oman’s respect for Saudi Arabia’s clout.
Oman will benefit from Saudi Arabia’s friendship
Oman has stepped up efforts to end the conflict in Yemen in recent weeks. The world’s biggest humanitarian crisis has erupted in Yemen as a Saudi-led military coalition fights against Iranian-backed Houthi rebels. The Saudi Press Agency reported that the Sultan met King Salman of Saudi Arabia and discussed how to deepen ties between the two countries.
Haitham, who came to power in Oman after a long reign of Sultan Qaboos, will also hold talks with other leaders during his two-day visit. Strengthening ties with Saudi Arabia will make it easier for Sultan Haitham (65) to deal with issues such as billions of dollars in debt, poor credit ratings and rising unemployment.
