TEHRAN, May 23 (MNA) – Iranian Minister of Health and Medical Education and his Omani counterpart in a meeting in Geneva on Tuesday called for boosting health cooperation between the two countries.

Bahram Einollahi met and held talks with Hilal bin Ali Al-Sabti on the sidelines of the World Health Assembly meeting in Geneva on Tuesday.

Expressing the readiness of Iran’s health ministry to expand health cooperation with Oman, he added that such cooperation can be formed and strengthened in the field of health tourism, exchange of teachers and students, health measures, and fighting diseases.

Al-Sabti, for his part, announced his country's readiness to expand regional and joint cooperation with Iran in the field of health, saying that the exchange of medical science professors between the two countries will lead to the promotion of public health and medical knowledge.

He also emphasized facilitating health tourism between the two states.
