Iran | Omani FM Hails Iran as the 'Base of Peace in the Region'

Oman’s Foreign Minister Yusuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah hailed Iran as the “base of peace in the region”, saying the Hormuz Peace Endeavor that has been proposed by the Iranian president shows that Tehran seeks calm in the region.

In a meeting with Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani in Tehran on Monday, bin Alawi reaffirmed Oman’s support for Iran in carrying out the Hormuz peace initiative, adding Americans do not know how to escape from the morass of problems.

For his part, Larijani said the US government’s attempts to drive the country’s oil exports down to zero have failed.

He said people of Iran are now sure that US President Donald Trump has outright hostility towards Iran.

“The US behavior lacks logic, and the American attempts to bring Iran’s oil sale to zero have been futile,” the Parliament speaker added.

Larijani further pointed to the crisis in Yemen, saying Yemen’s issue has hidden layers.

A ceasefire must be implemented in Yemen before addressing other issues, he underlined.
