Muscat: Oman’s Sultan Qaboos Bin Saeed is in “stable condition” and continuing a programme of medical treatment, state television said on Tuesday, citing a statement from the sultan’s office.

Concerns had grown for the sultan’s health after he made a short visit to Belgium for medical treatment this month and Omani authorities said nothing about his health after his return.

According to the Oman News Agency, Sultan Qaboos extended his thanks and appreciation to the people for their well-wishes, praying to Allah Almighty to preserve Oman and its people and to help them towards more progress and development.
