From the late 17th century, the Omani Sultanate was a powerful empire, vying with Portugal and Britain for influence in the Persian Gulf and Indian Ocean. At its peak in the 19th century, Omani influence or control extended across the Strait of Hormuz to modern-day Iran and Pakistan, and as far south as Zanzibar (today part of Tanzania, also former capital). As its power declined in the 20th century, the sultanate came under the influence of the United Kingdom. Historically, Muscat was the principal trading port of the Persian Gulf region. Muscat was also among the most important trading ports of the Indian Ocean. Oman's official religion is Islam.

The exercises involved the same type of naval USVs that Iran has seized twice in recent months ... That makes them particularly attractive for the US Navy in monitoring the 8,000 kilometer (5,000 miles) coastline stretching from the SuezCanal, through the Red Sea into the Gulf of Oman and into the Persian Gulf.
