Syria inaugurates diplomatic mission in Oman

Syrian regime’s foreign minister and Omani counterpart attend ceremony
MUSCAT, Oman: A Syrian regime-affiliated Embassy was inaugurated Wednesday in the Omani capital Muscat, Oman’s official news agency reported.
Syrian regime’s Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem and his Omani counterpart Yusuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah attended the ceremony, Oman News Agency reported.
On Monday, al-Moallem arrived in Muscat for an official visit to the Sultanate, his second visit since civil war broke in Syria in 2011.
On Tuesday, he held a meeting with Sayyid Asaad bin Tariq al-Said, Oman’s deputy prime minister for international relations, during which they discussed bilateral ties, the reports said.
Al-Muallem first visited Oman in August 2015.
Bin Alawi visited Damascus two months later.
Muscat recognizes the Bashar al-Assad regime as a legitimate ruling authority in Syria.
In earlier statements, bin Alawi has said that Oman was making efforts to find peaceful solutions to the conflicts in both Syria and Yemen using what he described as “quiet diplomacy”.–AA
