At the 8th India-Oman strategic dialogue, the Indian team was led by Deputy National Security Adviser Vikram Misri, while the Oman delegation was led by Major General Idris Abdulrahman Al-Kindi, the Secretary General of the National Security Council of the Sultanate of Oman.

During the dialogue, both sides reaffirmed their commitment to the close strategic partnership between India and Oman and highlighted the high priority accorded by the leadership of both countries to further enhance their strategic ties based on trust and mutual respect, people familiar with the matter said.
