‘Britain with Oman’ presents photographs reflecting the rich history of cooperation between the two countries over the past 50 years

In a recorded video message to mark the opening of the ‘Britain with Oman: The Renaissance Renewed’ virtual exhibition, Sayyid Theyazin bin Haitham al Said hailed the historic ties between Oman and the UK. He noted that the ties between the two countries witnessed remarkable progress during the Blessed Renaissance under the Late His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said.

“It is a great pleasure to see this contribution from the Anglo-Omani Society to our celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the Renaissance. These digital images show the friendship that binds the people of the two countries and it is an appropriate way to celebrate the longstanding relations between Oman and Britain,” he said. “Our countries have been friends for a long time. The relationship has been close over the last 50 years of Renaissance under the Late His Majesty Sultan Qaboos and remains so today under His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tarik.” 

In his message, Sayyid Theyazin referred to the landmark joint defence agreement of 2019 as a further boost to ties. 

“The 50th anniversary is an occasion to remember and celebrate the achievements of the Late His Majesty Sultan Qaboos in setting up the modern state. In foreign policy, he consistently followed the path of peaceful co-existence with other nations, non-interference in their internal affairs and respect for their sovereignty,” he said.

“Under the leadership of His Majesty Sultan Haitham, we will work on the renewal of the renaissance. We are confident that the UK will remain with us as an old friend and partner. We look forward to celebrate more events in this unique relationship.”
