“Allah has honored the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, since its inception by King Abdulaziz, in serving the Two Holy Mosques and the Hajj and Umrah pilgrims, a unique honor to take care of their safety, security and comfort.
“We thank God that he has enabled us to continue this great work, and we are still and remain proud, and we are honored to continue the mission, with the highest efficiency and most distinguished efforts.”
“It was by the grace of God that the Kingdom used the full capacity of the Two Holy Mosques to serve worshippers and pilgrims during Ramadan.”
The King said the country worked with the highest levels of responsibility, seriousness, and innovation, in the face of the pandemic, and mitigating its effects.
He pointed out that this tireless effort achieved positive fruits, on most aspects of life, thanks to God first, then to workers in all sectors, and citizens and residents, who have shown high awareness and great commitment to the instructions and guidelines that have been associated with the pandemic.
