An Omani official has broken the silence in the Sultanate of Sultan Qaboos bin Said, after news and reports of his deteriorating health and clinical death.
The Chairman of the Omani Journalists Association, Muhammad Al-Araimi, confirmed his assertion that "Sultan Qaboos" is in good health, denying rumors of his deteriorating condition, according to the website of the "Arab Journalists Union".
Al-Araimi’s talk came during a phone call yesterday, Sunday, which he received from the President of the “Arab Journalists Union” and the President of the Iraqi Journalists Syndicate to check on the health of “Sultan Qaboos.”
The Omani official added: "The Sultanate of Oman, which was built during the past fifty years to be a state of institutions, today enjoys the fruits of the foundations and foundations of (Sultan Qaboos) in various fields."
Media reports attributed the silence applied in the Sultanate of Oman on the health of "Sultan Qaboos", to differences within the ruling family over the new sultan, especially since "Qaboos" did not leave an heir or name a crown prince.
It is reported that the Belgian newspaper "De Morgen" reported that the companions of the Sultan of Oman, Sultan Qaboos, decided to return from Belgium to their countries, after reports that the Sultan did not respond to the treatment.
In 2017, the British newspaper The Economist reported that Sultan Qaboos suffered from unspecified cancer and rarely seen in recent years, except to demonstrate that he was still alive.
