FM: Oman ready to mediate for Iran, US

Tehran, Omani Foreign Minister Yusuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah said on Tuesday that his country is ready to mediate to mend relations between Iran and the US.

He said in a televised program Al Jazeera TV while disapproving having any move in his recent visit to Washington.

US President Donald Trump on Monday and during his meeting with Italy's prime minister said Washington is ready to kick off talks with Tehran without setting any preconditions.

Oman carries no message from any side, but believes that there might be chances to initiate talks between the two countries, the Omani foreign minister added.

Two sides need time and opportunity as any scuffles or conflicts bear no fruits for them as well as for the region, he said.
