Oman offers reassurance over health of Sultan Qaboos

Oman’s Diwan of Royal Court has issued a statement assuring citizens that Sultan Qaboos remains in good health.

Reports by some online media yesterday about the 73-year-old Omani ruler suggested his health had deteriorated, but a statement issued by the Diwan of Royal Court, on the Oman News Agency website, claimed he is in “sound health” after undergoing a series of medical tests.

“The Diwan of Royal Court is honoured to reassure the loyal citizens of Oman that His Majesty Sultan Qaboos is in sound health after conducting medical tests, which His Majesty will continue over the coming period in accordance with a specific medical programme,” said the statement.

Oman News Agency reports that the Sultan is spending his annual leave at his residence in Germany, from where he runs his country's affairs, guiding and following up all tracks of development in different parts of the Sultanate.
