The Sultan of Oman, Haitham bin Tariq, will visit Tehran to hold talks regarding the stalled nuclear negotiation between Iran and the West.
MP Ali Alizadeh told Tasnim News Agency on Tuesday that "Omani authorities have recently expressed willingness to play the role of mediator between Iran and the United States in order to bring the nuclear negotiations to a conclusion”.
He made the comments after the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of the Parliament held a meeting on Tuesday with Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian.
In the last two decades, Oman has acted as an intermediary between Tehran and Washington and has been successful in matters such as exchange of prisoners and the resolution of some disputes in nuclear negotiations.
Iran’s Foreign Ministry has recently claimed again that the US has tied the exchange of prisoners between the two countries to the nuclear negotiations.
Iran's negotiations with world powers to revive the 2015 nuclear deal have stalled since September.
Due to the suppression of nationwide protests in Iran and providing Russia with Iranian weapons in the war on Ukraine, the White House National Security Advisor, Jake Sullivan, said in January the US “priority right now is not the JCPOA". “This is not the moment or the context to place priority on that," Sullivan said.
