Oman says after stability in the Persian Gulf region

Oman says after stability in the Persian Gulf region

Omani Foreign Minister Yusuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah stressed the need to strengthen regional stability.

The Omani foreign minister made the remarks on Wednesday evening while commenting on the efforts to resolve the dispute between Qatar and some Arab countries which are members of the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC), IRNA reported.

Alawi bin Abdullah held talks with his Kuwaiti counterpart Sheikh Sabah al-Khaled al-Hamad al-Sabah on the latter’s move to mediate between the sides of the dispute.

The disagreements between the countries should be removed through dialogue, Omani foreign minister told reporters. 

Saudi Arabia has already rejected any possibility for mediation between Riyadh and Doha.

Certain Arab Persian Gulf countries announced that they had cut diplomatic and political ties with Qatar, accusing the country of supporting terrorism and meddling in the internal affairs of other states. Doha has rejected the accusations calling them as baseless.

In a concerted effort, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) plus Egypt cut their relations with Qatar, followed by some other Arab states. They also closed transport links with the gas rich country which is highly dependent on imports to meet its needs.
