Let’s see what this unique Arab country is up to!
Recent history of Oman
Oman had become a British colony in recent history and gained its independence in 1951. After that, the country has been passed to its new King, Sultan Said and since 1970, under the administration of his son, Sultan Qaboos who’s the reason why Oman has become the cool grandmother it is today, along with Jordan. Sultan Qaboos just passed away on 10 January 2020, passing the Sultanate of Oman to his cousin, Sultan Haitham (Because Sultan Qaboos had no children, himself).
People in Oman
