A member of the Iranian Parliament's Presiding Board Akbar Ranjbarzadeh said Saudi Arabia has accepted Iran’s demands to ensure the safety, dignity and health of Iranian Hajj pilgrims.
Ranjbarzadeh made the remarks among reporters on the sidelines of the Parliament’s open session on Wednesday.

“During a meeting held behind the doors on Wednesday morning, Leader's representative for Hajj and Pilgrimage Affairs Seyyed Ali Ghazi Askar and Iranian Culture Minister Reza Salehi Amiri submitted a detailed report on the dispatch of Iranian pilgrims to the Hajj pilgrimage,” Iranian MP noted.

He also underlined that holding Umrah Hajj is subject to the successful holding of obligatory Hajj this year.

He added that Saudi Arabia as always sent a letter to Iran announcing that Iranians would be able to participate in this year’s hajj pilgrimage to the holy cities of Mecca and Medina; "Islamic Republic of Iran in the written response to Saudi side said Iranians would not participate in Hajj rituals unless the two sides hold talks over the issue and the kingdom agrees with conditions set by Iran and guarantee to protect the health and dignity of Iranian pilgrims during the Hajj ceremony," he said.

Saudi Arabia initially announced that Iran, like other countries, could send its pilgrims and the country would warmly receive them, however, the Islamic Republic rejected the remarks and finally Saudi Arabia accepted Iran’s conditions to protect its pilgrims, parlimentarian said.

Ranjbarzadeh underlined that since Iran has no embassy in Saudi Arabia, the country agreed legally to protect Iranian pilgrims’ health, dignity and safety and avoid any kind of improper treatment.
