Pakistan’s Director General for Hajj Mission, Sajid Yousafani, was also accompanying the envoy, said a press release on Thursday.
The ambassador also discussed, with the Saudi minister, matters specific to Pakistani Hajjaj and the increase in Pakistani pilgrims’ quota in accordance with the recent census in Pakistan.
The Saudi minister for Hajj and Umrah told the ambassador that the Saudi government was working tirelessly to upgrade facilities for Hajjaj.
He also shared the intention of the Saudi government to increase accommodation in Mina by using new innovations and technologies. Saudi Civil Defence was already evaluating the feasibility and security aspects of the Mina project.
