The President expressed his hope that the meetings and talks held during this trip would deepen and strengthen the relations between the two countries, and noted: "In the meeting and talks we had with His Excellency Haitham bin Tariq, the Sultan of Oman, the ways to expand relations were discussed and we emphasized that the current level of relations is good, but due to the will and interests of both parties and the existing capacities in the two countries, the level of ties is insufficient."
Ayatollah Raisi added: "Iran and Oman are interested in improving the level of their cooperation in the fields of trade, economy, energy, especially gas and health tourism."
In response to the question of what horizon and goals the signing of a series of agreements in this trip outlines for the sustainable development of relations between the two countries, the President stated: "The biggest asset of Iran and Oman is mutual trust. The best path and platform for strengthening and deepening relations is for all cooperation to proceed in the shadow of trust."
Ayatollah Raisi noted: "The best way to develop economic, social and cultural interactions and strengthen cooperation between the two countries in bilateral, regional and international arenas will be achieved in the context of mutual trust."
Referring to the meeting with Iranian and Omani businessmen and raising some issues and problems in order to facilitate and increase trade between the two countries, the President said: "The result of this meeting was that we decided the Trade House of Iran in Oman to be formed as soon as possible and start working. The most important goal and achievement of this Iranian commercial office in Oman is to help Iranian and Omani businessmen recognize each other's mutual capacities."
