Gulf of Oman
The Gulf of Oman or Sea of Oman (Arabic: خليج عُمان khalīj ʿUmān; Persian: دریای مکران) is a strait (and not an actual gulf) that connects the Arabian Sea with the Strait of Hormuz, which then runs to the Persian Gulf. It borders Iran (in broader definition also Pakistan) on the north, Oman on the south, and the United Arab Emirates on the west.
