Oman

Yearbook 2016

Oman. At the beginning of the year, Oman received ten Yemenites from Guant芍namo, the largest one-day transfer of prisoners from the US detention camp since it was established in 2002. According to countryaah, Oman had thus received a total of 20 prisoners from Guant芍namo, more than any other country except the United Arab Emirates, which received as many. Until now, the Yemenites were allowed to stay in Oman for humanitarian reasons given the state of war in Yemen.

2016 Oman

In November, US Secretary of State John Kerry visited the country and met with Sultan Qabus ibn Said to discuss the war in neighboring Yemen. Kerry expressed gratitude for the role played by the Sultanate in helping American citizens captured by the Yemeni rulers in Yemen to be free. Oman was the only country on the Arabian Peninsula that did not participate in the war between the government and the neighboring rebels.
