India, Oman sign 8 agreements as Modi meets Sultan Qaboos
 
(Muscat, Feb 12, 2018): India and Oman have signed eight agreements, including on cooperation in the field of defence, health and tourism, as Prime Minister Narendra Modi held wide-ranging talks with the Sultan of the country

Modi, who arrived in Muscat from Dubai on the last leg of his three-nation tour, led delegation-level talks on Sunday with Sultan Qaboos bin Said al Said

"Charting out new frontiers in our bilateral relationship, PM @narendramodi led delegation-level talks with Sultan Qaboos of Oman. The two strategic partners discussed to strengthen cooperation in trade & investment, energy, defence & security, food security and regional issues," Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted

Sultan Qaboos appreciated the contribution of "honest and hard working" Indian nationals in the development of Oman

After their talks, the two sides signed eight agreements, including an MoU on legal and judicial cooperation in civil and commercial matters

They also signed an agreement on mutual visa exemption for holders of diplomatic, special, service and official passports and an MoU on cooperation in the field of health, tourism and peaceful uses of outer space

The two countries also signed an agreement on cooperation between Foreign Service Institute, Ministry of External Affairs, India and Oman's Diplomatic Institute

An MoU on academic and scholarly cooperation between National Defence College, Sultanate of Oman and the Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses

The two sides also signed annexure to the MoU on military cooperation

During his two-day visit, Modi will also meet Deputy Prime Minister for the Council of Ministers Sayyid Fahd bin Mahmoud Al Said and Deputy Prime Minister for International Relations and Cooperation Affairs Sayyid Asa'ad bin Tariq Al Said

Earlier, addressing the Indian diaspora at the Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex in Oman's capital, Modi said the ties of India and Oman have always remained strong despite the ups and downs in the political environment in both the countries

He also said that Indian diaspora has played an essential role in strengthening these ties

India and Oman have thriving links rooted in centuries old people-to-people exchanges, Modi said

More than nine million Indians work and live in the Gulf region. In Oman, they constitute the largest expatriate community

On the first leg of his trip, Modi had travelled to Ramallah, becoming the first Indian prime minister to make an official visit to Palestine. From there he visited the UAE, before arriving in Oman.(PTI)
