TEHRAN, May 29 (Xinhua) -- Iran and Oman on Monday called for expanding their cooperation through a guideline strategic document between the two countries, according to the Iranian official news agency IRNA.

The strategic cooperation document would be aimed at improving the relations between the two "brotherly" countries and laying the foundation of a framework for maintaining such relations, according to a joint statement issued by Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and Sultan of Oman Haitham bin Tariq Al Said at the end of the latter's two-day visit to Iran.

The two sides also highlighted the "constructive" role of private sectors in expanding bilateral economic cooperation and welcomed the constant increase in trade transactions and joint investment, said the statement.

They also stressed the necessity of implementing previously signed agreements to reach new ones in line with common interests.

Iran and Oman on Sunday signed four documents focusing on economic and energy cooperation and the development of free trade zones, according to a statement published on the website of the Iranian president's office.

Heading a high-ranking delegation, the Omani sultan arrived in Tehran on Sunday for a two-day visit at Raisi's invitation.

During his stay in Iran, Sultan Haitham also met with Iran's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.
