ISLAMABAD – Pakistan's leadership has extended its best wishes to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud for a safe and successful Hajj operation this year.
Pakistan’s Foreign Office, in a statement on Tuesday, said that the country supports the Saudi policy for Hajj this year.
