Saudi Arabia preparing to receive 2.6 mln pilgrims


The Saudi government is set to take measures to receive more pilgrims, said the country’s Minister of Culture and Information Dr. Adel Al-Turaifi, APA reported citing SPA news agency.

 

He said the kingdom is expecting to receive 2.6 million pilgrims this year.

 

Last year this figure was 1.8 million. The number of pilgrims will be possibly increased once the 5-year restrictions imposed due to the ongoing repair of the Grand Mosque of Mecca is over.
