Students from The Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Hajah Saleha Girls Arabic Religious Secondary School (SUAMPRIPAHS) visited the Embassy of Oman and learned more about the nation and its relations with Brunei Darussalam.
The students met with the Ambassador of Oman to Brunei Darussalam Sheikh Ahmed bin Hashel Al-Maskari, who introduced them to Oman’s cultural and tourism appeal, including its geographic location, natural beauty, diverse landscapes and heritage.
The ambassador also touched on some of the interesting similarities between Oman and Brunei Darussalam, such as the Sultani form of leadership and other matching cultural and civilisational aspects, which further strengthen bonds of friendship between the two countries and enable the two governments to find common grounds for bilateral cooperation.
The ambassador also noted the rapid development of bilateral relations between the two Sultanates.
The students expressed their appreciation to the embassy for the warm welcome and receiving a firsthand account of Oman’s culture, history and bilateral relations between Oman and Brunei Darussalam.
The ambassador also presented the principal of SUAMPRIPAHS with 12 Omani-themed books covering Oman’s history literature, social sciences, culture and other topics.
The ambassador hoped that these books would contribute to enriching the teachers and students’ overall knowledge on Oman.
