The visit to Oman scheduled for Queen Beatrix, crown prince Willem Alexander and princess Maxima between March 6 and March 8, is likely to be cancelled, Nos tv reports,quoting reliable sources in The Hague.
The visit is supposed to include a trip to the port city of Sohar, where two people died in clashes with government forces on Sunday.
A spokesman for the state information service RVD said: ‘The foreign office is monitoring the situation very carefully’.
After Oman, the queen is set to spend two days in Qatar. It is not clear if that portion of the trip will go ahead, Nos says.
