Security Environment 
-------------------- 
 
¶2.  (SBU)  On June 29, the Ambassador chaired a meeting of 
the EAC to review the Embassy's security posture prior to the 
local holiday weekend.  The meeting opened with a discussion 
of the local security situation, which the EAC continued to 
characterize as stable.  Likewise, the EAC noted no/no new 
threat reporting specific to Oman. 
 
------------------- 
Sustained Vigilance 
------------------- 
 
¶3.  (SBU)  Prior to concluding the meeting, RSO reiterated 
that, despite the relative calm, members of the EAC must 
continue reinforcing to both their staffs and family members 
the need for vigilance regarding all aspects of personal 
security - to include maintaining a low profile and remaining 
unpredictable.  RSO further re-emphasized the importance of 
immediately reporting all suspicious activity or 
security-related incidents to Post One.

EAC Conclusion 
-------------- 
 
¶4.  (S/NF)  The EAC concluded that there have been no 
substantive changes in the local security environment since 
the last meeting held on June 25 (reftel).  Accordingly, 
members agreed that the Embassy's already heightened security 
posture and FPCON remain appropriate.  Embassy Muscat remains 
acutely aware of the need to monitor both the regional and 
local security and threat environments, and is prepared to 
take the necessary countermeasures should changes to either 
occur.  AMB, A/DCM, P/E, MGT, RSO, RMAS, PAO, CONS, CLO, OMC 
(USDR), ECA (USCENTAF), and Duty Officer participated in the 
meeting.
