The Omani Foreign Minister paid a visit to Iran's capital city of Tehran on Monday to offer condolences over the tragic martyrdom of the late Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi and the country's Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian.

"I met and held talks with Badr bin Hamad Al Busaidi, the Foreign Minister of the Sultanate of Oman, who traveled to Tehran to express his condolences over the martyrdom of our country's president and foreign minister."
