Iran-Oman relations 

Iran's foreign minister has arrived in Oman on an official visit to discuss major regional and international developments with high-ranking Omani officials. Upon arrival in Muscat, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said he is carrying a message from President Ebrahim Raeisi to Sultan of Oman Haitham bin Tarik. He said the visit is an opportunity for both countries to discuss bilateral relations. Amir-Abdollahian said the ongoing crises in Yemen, Afghanistan and Ukraine are the main topic of discussions in his meetings with Omani officials.

US threat against Putin

Russia’s foreign minister accuses some US officials of threatening to kill President Vladimir Putin amid escalating tensions between the two nuclear-armed powers. Sergei Lavrov said unnamed officials from the Pentagon have threatened to deliver a quote decapitating strike on the Kremlin. He added that the remark was a threat to physically eliminate Russia’s head of state. He also warned Washington against possible consequences of such plans. Previously, US media reported Washington would consider a strike on the Kremlin if Moscow uses nuclear weapons. President Joe Biden has also warned the world would face quote Armageddon if Putin uses nukes in Ukraine. But the White House says the administration is not seeking to overthrow Putin.

US neo-Nazi threat

Four power stations in the US state of Washington were hit by vandalism amid warnings that neo-Nazis are seeking to stage a race war by targeting power grid. Tens of thousands of people were left without electricity due to the attacks. Local officials have not named who was behind the vandalism. But they say federal law enforcement have recently alerted them about threats to electric grids. Similar attacks have also been reported in other states in the past. And, people with neo-Nazi ties have been arrested in those cases. In January, the Department of Homeland Security said violent extremists have been developing credible and specific plans to attack electricity infrastructure since 2020. It said the power grid is an attractive target for extremists.
