India and Oman  signed eight agreements, including on cooperation in the field of defence, health and tourism, as Modi held wide-ranging talks with  Oman Sultan Qaboos bin Said al Said on Sunday.

On Monday, he also had a meeting with Oman's Deputy Prime Minister for the Council of Ministers Sayyid Fahd bin Mahmood Al-Said.

Modi said, "Our discussions were extremely productive."

In a series of tweets, Modi described his Oman visit as one he will cherish for a long time and thanked the Oman Sultan for his hospitality.

"This Oman visit is one I will cherish for a long time to come. This visit has helped in building upon the centuries old ties between our enterprising people, and will impart a substantial momentum to our relations in all spheres, including trade and investment relations.".

"Thank you Your Majesty Sultan Qaboos for your exceptional warmth, hospitality and friendship, as also your personal attention to details, that made my visit to Oman one of the most memorable visits I have undertaken anywhere," he said.

"Your Majesty Sultan Qaboos, my deep gratitude to you and the people of Oman for the tremendous support, goodwill and affection. We are deeply honoured and we look forward to the forthcoming 50th anniversary of your stewardship of Oman," said another tweet.
