India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Oman's Sultan Haitham bin Tarik have reaffirmed their commitment to further deepen and strengthen the bilateral partnership, according to information shared by the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) on Tuesday (June 11, 2024). 
The Sultan of Oman made a phone call to Prime Minister Modi on Tuesday (June 11, 2024), two days after he was sworn-in as Prime Minister again. 
"Sultan Haitham bin Tarik extended his heartfelt congratulations to Prime Minister on his reappointment as PM for a third term following the recently concluded general elections," the PMO said. The Sultan of Oman emphasised the centuries-old ties of friendship between Oman and India and conveyed his best wishes for the progress and prosperity of the people of India, the PMO added.
"The two leaders reaffirmed their commitment to further deepen and strengthen India-Oman partnership for the mutual benefit of both countries," the PMO stated.
Prime Minister Modi thanked the Sultan of Oman for his warm wishes and highlighted his historic visit to India in December 2023 which led to deepening of bilateral cooperation in all areas. He also extended warm greetings to His Majesty and the people of Oman on the upcoming Eid Al Adha festival, the PMO said.
India-Oman Partnership for the Future

The two countries adopted a new ‘India-Oman Joint Vision-A Partnership for Future,' during Sultan Haitham bin Tarik's visit to India in December 2023.
The India-Oman Joint Vision covers maritime cooperation and connectivity, energy security and green energy, cooperation in space, digital payments and fintech, partnership in health, tourism and hospitality, disaster management, agriculture, and food security, and using cricket to bolster people-to-people ties.
According to the Joint Statement issued after talks between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Sultan Haitham bin Tarik in New Delhi on December 16, 2023, the two leaders expressed satisfaction at the excellent state of bilateral relations. These have stood the test of time, evolving into a strong and enduring partnership built on historical ties, mutual trust and respect, and shared interests, the statement noted.
“The Leaders expressed confidence that the Joint Vision document will act as a roadmap for strengthening bilateral cooperation in diverse areas and will scale up the India-Oman partnership to new heights,” the statement added.
The December 2023 visit was of special significance as it marked the Sultanate of Oman's first visit to India in over 25 years since the late Sultan Qaboos' visit in 1997.
India and the Sultanate of Oman are strategic partners and the bilateral trade and investment relationship between the two nations has flourished over the years. India is among Oman’s top trading partners. Bilateral investment flows have also been robust, as reflected in numerous joint ventures established both in India and Oman.
