Mauritania mourns the death of Sultan Qaboos

إِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَإِنَّآ إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ

HM Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al-Said 18/11/1940 – 10/01/2020

More details are emerging of world leaders who not only sent statements and condolences to Oman and the Omani people, but those who suspended their busy schedules and flew to Muscat to mourn the passing of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said bin Taimour Al-Said in person.

Condolences for the late His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al-Said were offered by the Secretary General of the Presidency of Mauritania, Mohammed bin Salim Ould Al Bashir, on behalf of President Mohammed Ould Sheikh Al-Ghazwani.

Al-Bashir was received at Al-Alam Palace in Muscat by new Sultan HM Haitham bin Tariq bin Taimour Al-Said.

Al-Bashir siad:

“My condolences and sympathies from the Mauritanian President to His Majesty and the royal family over the death of the late His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said bin Taimur Al-Said  – may God rest his soul.”

HM Sultan Haitham thanked the president of Mauritania for his condolences and sympathies during this time of great loss for Oman, praying that Sultan Qaboos be granted his mercy and dwell in paradise, in addition to praying for the Mauritanian people to be safe from harm.

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.
