Omani Foreign Minister, Yusuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah, arrived in Iran’s capital Tehran, on Wednesday, for talks with Iranian senior officials, Tehran Times daily, reported.

Bin Alawi is scheduled to meet President Hassan Rouhani, and his Iranian counterpart, Mohammad Javad Zarif, on bilateral and regional issues.

The Omani top diplomat’s visit to Iran comes, amid a diplomatic standoff, between Qatar and the Saudi-led bloc.
