Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi mourned on Saturday the death of late Sultan of Oman Qaboos bin Said who died on Friday evening at the age of 79.


“With so much sadness and sorrow, I extend my condolences to the Arab nation and the people of Oman for the death of His Majesty late Sultan Qaboos bin Said, who was a constant supporter of Arab and Islamic causes,” said the Egyptian president in a statement posted on his official Facebook page.

The Egyptian president also announced a three-day mourning nationwide over Qaboos’ death.

Earlier on Saturday, the Egyptian presidency mourned the death of Qaboos, describing him as “a wise leader” and “a symbol of the strength and unity of Oman” during his rule that continued for almost half a century.

Oman’s state TV said Qaboos’ cousin Haitham bin Tariq al-Said, Oman’s culture minister, was named as his successor based on Qaboos’ recommendation written in a sealed letter.
