About the Event

On 21 June SQCC hosted interns from various U.S. States who are interning at the National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations (NCUSAR) in Washington, DC.

Mr. Salim Al Wardi, Deputy Chief of Mission of the Embassy of the Sultanate of Oman, gave a presentation on Oman’s Foreign Policy, its multilateral relations with other countries, Oman-U.S. relations, religious freedom in Oman, and tourism in the country.

Interns also visited SQCC’s library and learned more about Oman through a wide range of publications about cultural heritage, both English and Arabic. Students were intrigued and asked many questions about the services offered by SQCC’s library.

Interns also toured SQCC’s permanent exhibition, where they learned about traditional Omani dresses and handicrafts such as pottery, basketry, silversmithing and woodworking, as well as the aflaj irrigation system. Interns also learned about Omani forts, ships, and trade.
