Several topics of common interest in the field of Hajj regarding the services and facilities provided for the pilgrims and supervised by the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah were discussed in the two meetings.

The deputy Hajj minister noted that all relevant Saudi authorities are continuously working according to an integrated system that offers the best services to pilgrims and visitors of the Prophet’s Mosque, and in line with the directions of King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to allow pilgrims to perform their Hajj with ease and peace.
