TEHRAN – The Raisi administration is actively pursuing its policy of good neighborliness and strives to strengthen connections with the countries in the region, according to Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian.
In a post on his Twitter account on Tuesday, he said, “The neighborhood policy of the 13th administration is being carried out seriously based on the wise guidelines of the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei and the promotion and strengthening of relations with the neighboring and regional countries.”
He stated that Sultan Haitham bin Tariq of Oman’s recent trip to Tehran was a crucial, significant milestone in the two nations’ continuing strategic collaboration.
The Omani Sultan began his two-day visit to Tehran on Sunday at the request of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, leading a high-ranking political and business group.
During his visit to Tehran, the Sultan of Oman held talks with Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Khamenei as well.

Ayatollah Khamenei praised the Raisi administration’s approach to enhancing relations with regional countries during his meeting with the Omani Sultan.
He added that deeper bilateral cooperation will be advantageous for both Tehran and Muscat.

Four agreements were signed on Sunday by Iranian and Omani authorities to advance collaboration in free zones, energy, and economy.
