On the threshold of this year’s hajj congregation, Iranian Hajj officials met with Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei on Wednesday morning.
The meeting is held every year upon the arrival of the Hajj season, during which the Leader delivers his advises and message to the pilgrims and the organizers of the religious rituals.
The Leader hailed the resumption of the Hajj pilgrimage after a two-year hiatus as a major blessing, saying the annual ritual is a symbol of unity among Muslims.
Efforts should be made so that the Islamic unity is not disrupted, Ayatollah Khamenei said, warning that sowing sectarian strife has long been a scheme used by the British.
The Leader described revealing the Zionists’ plots and conspiracies as among necessities during the Hajj pilgrimage.
“The Arab and non-Arab governments that moved toward normalizing their relations with the Zionist regime, against the will of their nations and for the will of the United States, must know that these interactions will bring them nothing but exploitation at the hands of the Zionist regime,” the Leader said.
