TEHRAN (ISNA)- Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Countries Hossein Amir-Abdollahian is in Muscat to discuss issues of mutual interests as well as key regional and international issues with senior Omani officials.

He left for Oman on Sunday.

Oman was the first country in the Persian Gulf that was visited by President Hassan Rouhani after he assumed office in August 2013.

Omani Sultan Qaboos paid an official visit to Iran in late August 2013 as the first head of state to visit Tehran after President Rouhani was inaugurated in a ceremony on August 4.

Iran and Oman, which share control of the strategic Strait of Hormuz, maintain cordial relations.
