Oman's Sultan Qaboos Bin Said Al Said held talks with the Iranian foreign minister in Muscat yesterday, the Times of Oman reported.
In his first public appearance in months, Sultan Qaboos met Mohammad Javad Zarif and discussed bilateral cooperation "with a view to serving the shared interests of the Omani and Iranian peoples".
Oman's Minister of Foreign Affairs, Yusuf Bin Alawi Bin Abdullah, also attended the meeting.
Political developments in the Middle East were discussed in the meeting. An Iranian news agency reported that the conflict in Yemen, Syria and Iraq were the main focuses.
The majority of Sunni-led Arab states do not have strong bilateral ties with Iran due to political and religious differences; however Oman has maintained links with Tehran and has often mediated between conflicting sides.
