Muscat Daily - - FRONT PAGE -

Wash­ing­ton, US - The US State Depart­ment has lauded Oman’s role as an im­por­tant in­ter­na­tional part­ner in the fight against ter­ror­ism in the Mid­dle East.

It ap­pre­ci­ated Oman’s ef­forts in this field for the third year in a row. ‘ This is re­flected in the se­cu­rity and sta­bil­ity wit­nessed by Oman un­der the lead­er­ship of His Majesty Sul­tan Qa­boos bin Said. In 2018, Oman worked ac­tively to pre­vent ter­ror­ists from launch­ing at­tacks or us­ing the coun­try as a safe haven to do so,’ it said in its an­nual re­port.

The US State Depart­ment said that Oman has is­sued a se­ries of of­fi­cial state­ments con­demn­ing ter­ror­ist at­tacks in the world in 2018. ‘ We com­mend the ef­forts of the Omani au­thor­i­ties in com­bat­ing ter­ror­ism, espe­cially the Sul­tan’s Armed Forces and the Royal Oman Po­lice.’
