Omani leader Sultan Qaboos made his first public appearance in nearly a year yesterday, attending annual National Day celebrations.
Wearing a military uniform, Qaboos appeared in good health as he was welcomed by high-ranking military and civilian officials before presiding over the parade.
The 76-year-old Omani leader had received a number of visitors in recent months, including US Secretary of State John Kerry last week.
Qaboos returned to Oman in April after a trip to Germany where he underwent medical checks. He had previously spent eight months there for medical reasons before returning home in March last year.
At the time of his previous trip to Germany between July 2014 and March 2015, some Omanis had expressed concern about health reports about the sultan.
The authorities have not commented on those reports.
