Saudi Failure

Saudi Failure

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says Saudi Arabia failed to responsibly carry out its duties following last month’s deadly crush during the Hajj rituals in Mina, near the holy Saudi city of Mecca.
“We feel that the Saudi government and the country’s Hajj officials did not act responsibly in the issue of Mina catastrophe and that they did not take the proper measures to save the lives of the pilgrims and to address the situation of the deceased,” Zarif told reporters on Tuesday, according to Press TV.
He added that a number of pilgrims, including former ambassador to Lebanon Ghazanfar Roknabadi, are still missing and expressed hope that they would safely return home.
