The UK has signed an "historic" new Joint Defence Agreement (JDA) with Oman to develop capabilities and promote regional stability.
Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson, who travelled to Oman to sign the agreement alongside their Minister Responsible for Defence Affairs, said the agreement brings the two nations "even closer" together:
It follows the opening of the British Joint Logistics Support Base in the port town of Duqm opened last year, and the announcement of a new joint military training area to be launched in Oman later this year.
His Excellency Sayyid Bader bin Saud bin Harib Al-Busaidi, the Omani Minister Responsible for Defence Affairs said: "This agreement culminates the efforts of both countries' leaderships to enhance the existing bilateral cooperation and the strategic partnership between them.
"It is a milestone in the history of both nations."
