The Ministers of Interior of Oman and Saudi Arabia unveil the Empty Quarter crossing

Today, Monday, the Omani Ministers of Interior, Hammoud bin Faisal Al Busaidi and Saudi Abdulaziz bin Saud bin Nayef Al Saud, visited the Empty Quarter port linking the two countries, which was inaugurated last month.

The Omani News Agency reported that this visit came as a deepening of the bonds of brotherhood and cooperation between the Sultanate of Oman and Saudi Arabia, and a consolidation of the common fraternal bond that was laid down by the leaderships of the two brotherly countries, as it put it.

The two ministers unveiled the commemorative plaque for the opening of the port, and reviewed the progress of work and the services provided by the port to the passers-by between the two sides.

On December 7 last year, this port was opened, which is located on the first land road between Oman and Saudi Arabia, and is expected to contribute to revitalizing the movement of transport and goods and increasing the volume of trade exchange between the two countries.

In a press statement today, Monday, the Omani Minister of Transport and Communications Saeed bin Hamoud Al Maawali confirmed that the Empty Quarter crossing will contribute to the development of the economy, as it shortened about 400 kilometers of the longitudinal distance, and also shortened the time by about 10 hours.
