Israel – Oman Relations

(Communicated by Foreign Ministry Spokesman)
October 12, 2000

Israel regrets the decision of the Sultanate of Oman to close the Israel Trade Representation Office.

In days of crisis, it is especially important that lines of communication between countries be kept open.

The cessation of contact and dialogue does not contribute to ending the unfortunate events of the past days, nor to advancing the peace process which Oman certainly desires.
