"During the upcoming visit of Iran President and Iran Minister of Transport to Muscat, Oman is expected to join the trilateral Chabahar Agreement," a statement by the Iranian Ministry of Transport and Urban Development said.

The negotiation agendas include strengthening maritime transport between Bandar Abbas Port in Iran and the Port of Al Suwaiq in Oman and establishing a passenger ship between Chabahar and Muscat.

The ministry’s statement further quotes informed sources as reporting the signing a MoU for multimodal sea and road transport and Oman’s joining to the trilateral Chabahar Agreement previously inked between Iran, India, and Afghanistan.  

Easing traffic of Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Lines in the Ports of Salalah and Sohar in Oman is among other topice on the agendas of the talks between Iranian and Omani officials.

In the air field, the two sides are expected to agree on the scheduled flights (rather than charter flights), diversification of Iran’s aircraft fleets along Oman route, and launching Ramsar-Muscat flights.
