Throughout a long history lasting more than 70 years, the Omani positions on the Palestinian issue have been evident in terms of the principles and foundations on which they were based in solidarity with the Palestinian right and supporting the people in achieving their legitimate rights.
The Sultanate considers that the Palestinian issue is central to issues at the regional and international levels and that the overall issue cannot be separated from the global movement. This is the same from the perspective of the Omani people, who oppose any possible understanding of the Israeli occupation.
Oman has taken various measures in response to significant incidents from 1948 to 2022. Below are some notable examples:
1. The Arab-Israeli War of 1948: Oman, along with other Arab countries, opposed the establishment of the State of Israel and supported the Palestinian cause. They condemned the displacement of Palestinians and called for their right to return.
2. The Six-Day War in 1967: Oman expressed solidarity with the Arab countries and condemned Israel’s occupation of the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and other areas. They called for implementing United Nations resolutions to achieve just and lasting peace.
3. Yom Kippur War of 1973: Oman supported Arab countries in their efforts to reclaim lands occupied by Israel. They stressed the need to reach a negotiated settlement based on the principles of international law and the rights of the Palestinian people.
4. Recent developments: Oman continued to call for a peaceful solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. They supported international efforts, such as the Arab Peace Initiative, and called for recognizing an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital. Throughout these events, Oman has consistently demonstrated its support for the rights and aspirations of the Palestinian people while calling for a peaceful and just solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
