Muscat, The International Conference on

Omani-British Relations between the 17th and the 19th centuries was

concluded at the Kempinski Hotel Muscat today under the patronage of

Mohammed bin Salim al-Tobi, Minister of Environment and Climate

Affairs.

The conference came up with a set of recommendation that

included encouraging researchers to diversify their resources in Arabic,

English, French, Italian, Dutch, Russian, Persian, Portuguese,

Ottoman, Hindi sources and other languages to reveal the nature of

the Omani-British relations, European countries and the United States

of America (USA).

The conference also recommended directing graduates and

researchers to conduct scientific research in the master and doctorate

levels, which deal with the historical relations between Oman, Britain,

European countries and the USA, to provide research grants to study

these relations, to emphasize the deepening of scientific research and

the objectivity and accuracy of reference to Arab and foreign references

in the preparation of studies and research as documents and

archaeology are the most important foundations in this regard.

The conference recommended the establishment of an

information bank on the Omani-British relations and other countries, in

cooperation with the role of the international archives and the scientific

bodies concerned with those countries and the promotion of

exploration and search for monuments, preserving and protecting

them. It also called for the establishment of a scientific centre to study

relations between the Sultanate of Oman, Britain, European countries

and the USA, as well as highlighting the Omani-British relations.
