Oman and Saudi Arabia have signed a deal to keep sea animals on the Arabian Sea.
The signing ceremony took place in the Kingdom’s capital city, Manama, in the southern province of Kufa.
The agreement, which was announced on Thursday, means Oman and the Kingdom will jointly keep on keeping marine life in the Arabian Gulf.
“The agreement on marine wildlife is a positive step towards protecting marine biodiversity,” said Minister of State for Fisheries, Fisheries, and Aquaculture Mamdouh Ebrahim on the occasion.
The agreement, signed by Omani Minister of Fisheries and Aquatic Affairs Mohammed Bin Saad al-Khayyari, also obliges Omani authorities to ensure that marine wildlife populations are monitored, and ensure that the protection of their habitats is guaranteed.
The two countries have already signed a bilateral agreement with each other to preserve marine biodiversity on the Omani coasts.
