Ambassador of Italy
I am honoured to express, on behalf of my govern-ment and myself, admirat-ion and respect on the occasion of the 50th anni-versary of a re-born Oman.
The merit lies entirely with the late His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said, whose rule not only propelled Oman’s economy into the 20th and 21st centuries, putting it on par with those of the most advanced countries, but also brought to its citizens and the hundreds of thousands of expatriates living here harmony, peace, prosperity and aspirations for the future. The years of Sultan Qaboos’s rule made Oman a beacon and an example to the countries of the region.
I would like to congratulate and wish His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tarik a long and happy reign, rich with rewarding success, in light of the task he has given himself and so deftly begun, in circumstances much harsher than imagined, to take the country from Renaissance to the Future in the challenging path of reform he has drawn.
Ambassador of Korea
On the occasion of the National Day of Oman in memory of the Late His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said, on behalf of the Republic of Korea, I congratulate the Omani people. The Late His Majesty Sultan Qaboos laid the foundation of not only the Renaissance but also long-lasting friendship between Oman and Korea by establishing bilateral ties in 1974.
Under the wise leadership of His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tarik, I will remain dedicated to deepening our friendship while remembering the benevolence and generosity of the Late His Majesty Sultan Qaboos.

I am grateful for the hospitality extended to the close to 45,000 Filipinos living and working in Oman. I am also pleased that our countries maintain a strong relationship that is defined by mutually beneficial exchange in trade and commerce. I look forward to enhancing the bilateral relations between the Philippines and Oman, which coincidentally is also making its 40th anniversary this year.
Ambassador of Iran
On the occasion of the 50th National Day of Oman, which coincides with the 50th anniversary of the establishment of relations between Iran and Oman, I would like to congratulate the friendly and neighbourly sultanate, its leadership, the government and people on this occasion, wishing them good health, progress and prosperity.
I am confident that just as the relations between the two countries witnessed stability and steadfastness – during the reign of the Late His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said – and turned into an example to follow, in continuation of that path, these relations will witness further development and prosperity under the wise leadership of His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tarik. In this context, we will seek to enhance economic cooperation between the two countries.
Thomas F Schneider
Ambassador of Germany
Just a few weeks after celebrating the 30th anniversary of Germany’s peaceful reunification, the German Embassy in Muscat conveys sincere feelings of friendship to the people of Oman on the occasion of the 50th National Day.
The golden jubilee of Oman’s Renaissance marks a significant moment in the sultanate’s rich history. When the Late His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said passed away earlier this year – may he rest in peace – he left behind a modern state with a proud history and a wealth of tradition and culture. This solid groundwork, which the founding father of modern Oman had laid down, allowed a swift transition of power to His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tarik whom we wish good health, happiness and
