Haj Minister Bandar Hajjar yesterday held talks with Indonesian Religious Affairs Minister Suryadharma Ali on matters related to Indonesian pilgrims’ housing and transport as well as Haj awareness programs.
Hajjar emphasized the importance of educating pilgrims about Haj matters before they arrive in the Kingdom. Foreign Haj missions should complete arrangements for the transportation and housing of their pilgrims in advance, the Saudi minister said.
The Indonesian minister commended Saudi Arabia’s services for pilgrims. He also noted the government’s efforts to develop the two holy mosques and the holy sites in Mina, Arafat and Muzdalifa to accommodate more pilgrims.
