Omani Commander Visits Iranian Air Force Overhaul Center

Commander of Oman's Royal Air Force Major General Yahya bin Rashed al-Jomeh, who is in Tehran on an official visit, toured the main overhaul center of the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force (IRIAF) on Monday.

Rashed al-Jomeh was accompanied by Lieutenant Commander of the IRIAF for Coordination Brigadier General Aziz Nasirzadeh during the visit to Mehrabad Air Base Overhaul Center.

Iran overhauls different types of fighter jets, cargo planes and passenger planes, including Mig-29, F-4, C-130 and Boeing-747.

The Omani air force commander is due to confer with top Iranian military commanders to exchange views on ways of bolstering mutual cooperation and discuss other issues of mutual interest.

During the visit to Tehran, bin Rashed is slated to attend meetings with Chief of Staff of Iran's Armed Forces Major General Seyed Hassan Firouzabadi, Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi and several other top commanders of the Iranian Army and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).

Over the last few years, Iran and Oman have expanded military ties and cooperation specially over security in the Persian Gulf.

The two countries signed a security agreement in August 2009.

Later in August 2010, the two Persian Gulf states signed an agreement to further boost mutual cooperation in the field of defense.

In December, the Iranian parliament approved a bill that allows Tehran to implement an agreement on security cooperation and coordination with Oman.
