Riyadh- Iranian pilgrims praised on Monday Saudi Arabia for providing the best and most comfortable technologies that contribute in making the Hajj season a comfortable journey, despite the fact that millions of pilgrims gather in a small area during a short period.

The Iranian pilgrims refuted the Iranian regime claims that Saudi Arabia was incapable to run the Hajj, describing these claims as “completely false.”

A number of Iranian and non-Persian pilgrims who came from Iran and outside Iran to perform Hajj have lauded the efforts being exerted by Saudi Arabia, led by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and his Crown Prince, to provide easy and comfortable Hajj services that contribute to making the Hajj journey a complete success.

Hajji Abdulsalam Mohammed Ali, who lives outside Iran, said he was performing Hajj for the tenth time this year.

Mohammed Ali said every time he visits Saudi Arabia, he realizes a major difference in services, which develops towards complete comfort for pilgrims.

Ali Naderi, an Iranian who comes from the U.S., said such giant projects, which are used for only five days a year, prove that the Saudi authorities are aiming to please the guests of Allah the Almighty.

Diauddin Sadr Al-Ashrafi, from the Iranian Azerbaijan province and member of the Iranian Federal Council from the Ahwaz Solidarity party said he was performing Hajj for the first time.

Al-Ashrafi said the Saudi efforts to serve pilgrims from all over the world are the best response on those who claim otherwise.

Meanwhile, Kurdish political activist Jamal Bur Karim, a former member of the Kurdistan Democratic Party said that Iranian claims against Saudi Arabia are nothing but an attempt to exist the dire economic situation in Iran.

“Iranians should realize that the regime is not worth ruling the country. This has been proven through time, since the creation of the Iranian Revolution, until today. This regime is about to collapse due to the continuous pressures exerted by Iranian nationals and non-Persian peoples,” he said.
