Pakistan and Oman are strategic allies and neighbors. Since 2017, the arch of political, parliamentary, and military interchange has gained traction.
Due to their geographical proximity and leadership, Oman and Pakistan are natural partners. Oman and Pakistan have great, close, friendly, fraternal, cordial, and profound relations.
Both countries are UN, OIC, and NAM members. There are many Pakistani immigrants living in Oman. Pakistan’s closest Arab neighbor is the Sultanate of Oman.
Tolerance, peace, and coexistence with people of other faiths are highly valued in Oman. Oman’s relationship with Pakistan is based on a solid foundation that predates the establishment of modern Pakistan.
Given Pakistan’s and Oman’s geographical proximity, the two countries have recently decided to expand their trade and economic ties. Pakistan is regarded by Oman as a gateway to the Central Asian states.
Pakistan as a major regional export to Oman and the Gulf Cooperation Council is strongly urged that bilateral cooperation be strengthened and brought to new heights by enhancing commercial partnerships.
Pakistan places a high value on its ties with Oman and wishes to strengthen them in all areas. The establishment of a Pak-Oman Friendship Group in Oman’s Consultative Assembly (Majlis A’ Shura) is expected to strengthen ties between the two countries.
