The Sultanate is effectively dealing with all that is related to international terrorism and sectarian intolerance.
In 2002, it set up a system for fighting money laundering and terrorist financing in accordance with a Royal Decree. In 2011 it ratified the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism.

“Oman has managed to stay out of disputes. Maintaining good relationships with Western allies and other Middle Eastern countries, including Iran. And it has managed to fend off threats from ISIS and other extremist groups.”
“In 2015, International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation and Political Violence at London’s King’s College found that not a single Omani had joined the more than 20,000 foreign fighters battling alongside ISIS.”
“The country’s efforts at staying out of the region’s wars have paid off. In November, Sydney-based Institute for Economics and Peace released its annual Global Terrorism Index. It assesses the impact of terrorism on 163 countries on a scale of zero to 10.”
“Just 34 countries scored zero. Oman was the only country in the Middle East among that grouping.”
