“These celebrations come today as an expression of deep love and gratitude for everything that has been achieved in this country.
“It was my pleasure to be a part of MEC’s celebration and I would like to congratulate every person living in Oman on this happy and important occasion.”
Thuraya al Yaarubi, acting head of student activities office, said, “Participating and organising such national events creates a sense of unity and belonging for this wonderful country and the great leader of Oman.
