On the Sultan’s Meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu

Great Seal of the United States

The United States welcomes the visit last week of Prime Minister Netanyahu to Oman, where he was received by Sultan Qaboos and senior members of the Omani government. We commend the Sultan’s initiative in issuing this invitation and opening this dialogue. This marked a helpful step in all of our efforts to strengthen relationships across the region and build a brighter future for Israel, the Palestinians, and all of their neighbors.
