Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov met Oman’s Sultan Haitham bin Tarik in Muscat on Wednesday to discuss bilateral ties.
Lavrov was welcomed by Foreign Minister Badr Al Busaidi as he disembarked from his flight at Muscat International Airport for the one-day visit.
He then travelled to the capital’s Al Barakah Palace.
Sultan Haitham and Lavrov talked about the war between Russia and Ukraine.
Haitham “stressed the need to adhere to the rules of international law and to intensify efforts to reach political and diplomatic solutions through dialogue”.
Talks should preserve “the independence, sovereignty and sound co-existence of countries and peoples,” he said.
Lavrov praised “the Omani wisdom in dealing with various regional and international issues”.
