The Omani Foreign Ministry has stated that it will send a delegation to the Palestinian city of Ramallah to establish a new diplomatic mission.

Oman’s Foreign Ministry said in a Twitter post on Wednesday that it is planning to establish a new embassy in the Israeli-occupied West Bank.

“As part of our continuous support to the brotherly Palestinian people, the Omani Sultanate has decided to open a new diplomatic mission at the embassy level. A delegation from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will travel to Ramallah to initiate the opening of the embassy”, the post said.

The move comes amid a US-led economic workshop in Bahrain where a Middle East peace plan is expected to be unveiled.​ The so-called “deal of the century” is not expected to recognise an independent Palestinian state.
