New Delhi: Oman Foreign Minister Yousuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah will on Tuesday visit India to congratulate the new Indian government on behalf of his country.
According to a report, India is expected to utilise Abdullah`s visit to discuss bilateral trade.

Oman is an important trading partner of India in the Gulf region with bilateral trade exceeding USD 5.70 billion in 2013-14.

Abdullah had visited India in February on the invitation of then external affairs minister Salman Khurshid.
