Costa Rica establishes diplomatic ties with Oman

(Xinhua) - Costa Rica has established diplomatic relations with Oman, the Costa Rican Foreign Ministry said Thursday.

The document on the establishment of ties was signed Wednesday, which said both countries wished to "strengthen the friendly and cooperative ties in the political and economic sectors based on mutual respect."

Both countries pledged to respect each other's sovereignty and territorial integrity, the international law and the United Nations Charter.

"The government of Oman and the government of Costa Rica express their conviction that the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries conforms to both states' national interests and will contribute to the strengthening of peace and international cooperation," said the document.

On Aug. 16, 2006, Costa Rica announced that it decided to move its embassy in Israel from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv.

The Central American country has ever since established or resumed diplomatic ties with several Arab countries, such as Egypt, Kuwait, Jordan, Bahrain and Yemen.
