REGIONAL CRISIS: SAYYID BADR SAYS PEACE CANNOT BE IMPOSED

MUSCAT: As part of an Anglo Omani Society event, Sayyid Badr bin Hamad al Busaidi, secretary general, Ministry of Foreign Affairs recently delivered a lecture in London titled ‘Omani views on regional issues.’

He outlined Oman’s belief that local issues need local solutions and regional issues require regional solutions, a press release stated.

On instability in countries like Syria and Iraq, Sayyid Badr said that while peace should be the main aim, it cannot be imposed. “Oman’s approach is based on realising that peace and stability are preconditions for prosperity. Also, those foundations are best built by people who are going to live in that house,” the release quoted him as saying.
