Dafous Economic Forum was launched yesterday in The capital of Jordan for 2 days (6-7) April where leaders of the Arabic world met during the summit.
Arab ministers have discussed relations with Israel in a session of the World Economic Forum regional meeting in Jordan.
Officials and business leaders exchanged their opinions in various sessions on different topics during the two-day forum that started on Saturday.
In a session where Arab ministers talked about Israel, Oman's Foreign Minister Yusuf bin Alawi spoke about the need to help Israel to get out of the feeling of threat. May be he stressed on the deepest relationship that gathered Israel and Oman recently...though that Oman does not have diplomatic relations with Israel but Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a surprise visit to the country in October of last year.
Arab countries have been at odds with Israel over Palestine for decades. Among those countries, only Egypt and Jordan have diplomatic relations with Israel.
But recently some Arab countries and Israel have been moving toward closer ties as they share the common interest of countering the growing influence of Iran.
The Omani foreign minister's comments could indicate changes in the country's political view.
