The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is to have the prototype of a new Mina in 2020, Khalid Bin Faisal All Saud, Governor of Makkah, has said. He made the disclosure at a press conference on Tuesday in Mina, Saudi Arabia.

While responding to questions by journalists on likely increase in quota of pilgrims to countries, the Governor said that the decision taken by the Organization of Islamic Countries (OIC) is that every country is granted quota according to increase in population

“Quota automatically increases by increase in county’s population,” he said, adding that “Hajj has been designed only for ibadah and Saudi Arabia will not interfere in any country’s politics or crisis.”

On improved navigation service to missing pilgrims during Hajj, Governor Khalid Bin Faisal All Saud said that Saudi Arabia has a very strategic plan to upgrade the current navigation services, especially to missing pilgrims which, according to him, cannot be achieved in one year.

He however assured that gradually there will be an improvement and upgrade in the services.

The Governor congratulated the custodian of the two holy mosques and the crown prince on the success of the 2019 hajj season.
