Oman Makes Calls to Israeli Minister

Monday 17 August 2020

DUBAI (Reuters) — Oman’s minister of state for foreign affairs Yousuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah spoke to Israel’s foreign minister and in a separate call to an official from the Palestinian political group Fatah, Oman’s foreign ministry said on Monday.

Oman has said it supports the United Arab Emirates’ decision on Thursday to normalise ties with Israel.

Speaking to Israeli foreign minister Gabi Ashkenazi, Bin Abdullah said Oman supported a “comprehensive, just and lasting peace in the Middle East” and that negotiations on an Israel-Palestine peace process needed to resume.

Bin Abdullah also spoke to Jibril Rajoub, secretary general of the central committee of the Palestinian Fatah group, and emphasised the depth of Oman’s relationship with Palestinians.

Israel’s intelligence minister on Sunday said Oman, alongside Bahrain, could be the next Gulf country to follow the UAE in formalising ties with Israel. Oman has made no comment on the subject.
