Oman Becomes The First Gulf State To Send An Ambassador To Syria

Oman becomes the first country to send an ambassador to Syria. Oman happens to be the only country that has kept a diplomatic relationship with Syria despite the pressure of the United States and the other Gulf allies.

The credential of the foreign minister from Oman Turki bin Mahmood al-Busaidy has been accepted and has been appointed to the post.

Some other Arabs stated are also reconciling their relationship with Syria. However, Oman is the first Gulf state to do so.

Bahrain also along with Oman kept the embassy open.  Sultan Haitham pledged to keep the friendly terms with all the countries.
