Israeli PM Netanyahu makes rare visit to Oman

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited the Gulf state of Oman and discussed peace initiatives in the Middle East with Omani leader Sultan Qaboos. Netanyahu’s office shared the news of the visit after he returned home. The rare visit was not publicised beforehand and comes days after Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas met Qaboos on a three-day visit to the country. Netanyahu was accompanied by senior officials, including the head of the Mossad intelligence agency and his national security adviser.Among the issues discussed were “matters of joint interest regarding the achievement of peace and stability in the Middle East”. Though uncommon, Israeli leaders have previously visited the Gulf state.In 1996, the late Shimon Peres went to Oman and Qatar when he was prime minister and opened Israel trade representative offices in both Gulf countries. Earlier this year, Omani Foreign Minister Yusuf bin Alawi made a rare visit by such a senior Arab official to Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque.
