Christodoulides meets with Deputy Prime Minister and Ministers of Oman

Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikos Christodoulides was received Thursday by Deputy Prime Minister of Oman Sayyid Fahd bin Mahmood al Said, during the second day of his official visit to Oman.

During the meeting, Christodoulides and al Said, exchanged views on a wide range of issues, focusing on the prospects for further tightening bilateral relations between the two countries and the positive role played by Cyprus and Oman in efforts to strengthen cooperation in the wider region of the Eastern Mediterranean, the Middle East and the Gulf.

According to a Foreign Ministry statement, Oman`s Deputy Prime Minister referred to the traditional friendship of the two countries, making special reference to the significant contribution of Cypriot companies to the construction of modern Oman infrastructure.

The two officials agreed to undertake specific actions, focusing on the areas of trade, tourism, education and cultural exchanges.

The Foreign Minister briefed the Deputy Prime Minister on the latest developments concerning the Cyprus issue and discussed with him issues related to EU cooperation with Oman and more widely with the Gulf countries.
