Oman working to ease tensions between Washington and Tehran

Oman is working to reduce tensions between Washington and Tehran, according to Oman’s Minister of Foreign Affairs.

According to a statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, His Excellency Yosuf Bin Alawi, Minister for Foreign Affairs, said in a conversation to the Middle East Monitor, “We are working other sides to ease the tension between Washington and Tehran,” and added “The danger of a war can harm the entire world.
“Both the American and Iranian sides understand the dangers of a further slide,” he added.

Regarding the new plan by the USA for Israel and Palestine, he said, “It is unacceptable for Israel to have a country and Palestine to have tents. This will not be acceptable…this is not a matter of money, but a matter of a nation of ten million people living both within and scattered.

“We know that this is not easy. There will be many difficulties, preparations and discussions, but many of these complications have solutions. Israel and Palestine are in one geographical location, which means that they must have partnerships that benefit both sides.
“Israel must be a friendly country to Palestinians. It must be a country of partnerships, rather than a country that takes. If the American plan does not address all of this, then it will be a flawed plan,” he concluded.
