The Secretary General of the AGCC (Arab Gulf Countries Council) Abdulrahman bin Hamad al Attiyah heaped warm praise on the His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said of Oman for his great success in achieving unprecedented improvement in human rights and other areas in his country.
Describing the Sultan’s achievements as ‘remarkable’ al Attiyah expressed appreciation of the ‘wise policies’ of his majesty which have accomplished so much for the Sultanate in recent years. The Secretary General added that because of these achievements Oman has become a source of ‘inspiration’ for other Arab Gulf states and has garnered respect from the rest of the international community.
What was especially satisfying to al Attiyah as representative of the AGCC was the assertion made by Sihasak Phuangketkeow, president of the Human Rights Council, that Oman is meeting all the international standards, work mechanisms and conditions for the implementation of human rights in the Sultanate.
Al Attiyah told the Oman News Agency that Phuangketkeow’s statement and the success of the Sultanate is simply a reflection of the wise political vision and enlightened perspective of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said. The Secretary General went on to say that Oman’s success is proof that the Sultan is committed to security, stability and the welfare of the Omani people.
