Sultan Qaboos sends condolences to Iran and Ukraine

His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al-Said, Sultan of Oman sends his condolences to both Iran and Ukraine

His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said has sent two letters of condolences. One to President Hassan Rouhani of Iran and one more President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine. It is understood that the letters offered condolences to the victims of the plane crash at the Iranian capital, Tehran.

In the two letters, His Majesty expressed his sincere condolences and sympathy to the Presidents of Iran and Ukraine, families of the victims and the friendly Iranian and Ukrainian people.

The Ukrainian civilian flight was flying close to Iranian anti-missile defences at the time of Iranian retaliation against the US. The aircraft’s black box which has been independently examined by France, shows that the craft was accidentally shot down by Iran’s anti-missile defence system in Tehran. There were no survivors. Approximately half of those on board were Iranian the rest were mostly Canadian with some British and Saudi Arabian civilians and staff also.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.

“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
