TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Yusuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah arrived on Wednesday in Tehran for a one-day visit.
They called bilateral ties satisfactory and stressed developing bilateral economic ties as well.
Earlier in April, the naval forces of the Islamic Republic and Oman held five-day joint rescue and relief drills in Iran’s southern waters and the northern areas of the Indian Ocean.
An Iranian naval flotilla, comprising Sabalan destroyer, Lavan logistic warship and helicopter carrier, SH3D helicopter and Falakhan missile-equipped warships, left Iran for Oman to take part in the drills, the commander of Iran's First Naval Zone, Rear Admiral Hossein Azad, said.
He added that it was imperative to improve security in Iran’s southern waters and the Indian Ocean given their geographical significance in maritime economy and busy traffic of ships and oil tankers.
“The naval forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the neighboring country of Oman will draw plans and stage joint maneuvers to this effect,” Azad said.
Iran and Oman have so far held several naval relief and rescue drills aimed at enhancing readiness for providing relief services, conducting rescue operations, improving the level of regional cooperation and exchanging experience.
