Kerry highlights Oman’s regional role
Oman underlined its status as a diplomatic player in the region when Sultan Qaboos Bin Said Al-Said on 14 November hosted US Secretary of State John Kerry for a meeting and dinner at the Bait Al-Barakah royal palace. Kerry told a 15 November press roundtable in Abu Dhabi his Omani visit had several reasons, not least to pay respects to Qaboos. The sultan had been “enormously supportive of our efforts through these last years, particularly the overture to Iran as well as being helpful with regards to Yemen and other issues of concern”.
