The Consulate, in coordination with the doctor of the Pakistan Maritime Security Agency, conducted a medical examination to ensure the health of the missing Omani fishermen. The agency affirmed that both the fishermen are in perfect health.


Oman's Embassy in Pakistan is coordinating with relevant authorities to bring the fishermen back to Oman.


The fishermen went missing on July 9th from the al Ashkharah coast after their boat's engine failed in the middle of the sea, forcing them to drift aimlessly in the open ocean for almost ten days.


Luckily, a merchant ship which was passing through the area noticed them and saved them.
