Prince Khaled Al-Faisal attributed the success of Hajj to the great efforts exerted by the Saudi government as well as various government and private agencies involved in serving the pilgrims. “The successes that we witness in every Hajj season did not come about by chance, but thanks to God and then to the leadership of this country since the era of the founder King Abdulaziz, and his righteous sons after him, until the prosperous era of King Salman. Choosing the name of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques for the kings of this country is the best evidence of the care and attention they give to the sanctities and their visitors.”

They will continue to work tirelessly to be a unique and distinguished model in this respect,” he said. “Thank God for the success, and thanks to the leadership for mobilizing its resources and personnel and facilitating the pilgrims to perform the rituals in ease,” he said.
