According to Caspian International News Agency in Amol, Saeed Ohadi, on Wednesday night said to the media, “Considering the Saudi Arabia’s sabotage, this year’s hajj will not be held, but one of the major responsibilities of the Hajj and Pilgrimage Organization is to make effort for performing obligatory hajj.
The head of Hajj and Pilgrimage Organization said, “We make every effort to maintain this year’s hajj quota and with this quota, we can witness Iranian pilgrims’ presence in next year’s hajj season.”
Ohadi added, “We had initially identified 114 bodies and the incompetence and ineptitude of the Saudi Arabia in this incident was obvious. Wahhabis didn’t believe in returning the bodies of martyrs, but with the negotiations and the historical speech of the Supreme Leader, they changed their mind.”
He stated, “Simultaneous to the supreme leader’s speech in the negotiation, the behavior of House of Saud changed and they provided the necessary conditions for returning the bodies of martyrs.”
