A statement on the official Saudi Press Agency said the Salwa border point would be open for Qatari citizens who wish to perform the annual pilgrimage to pass through with no electronic permissions needed.
The news agency went on to report that King Salman had dispatched a Saudi Airlines aircraft to Doha's worldwide airport "to transport all Qatari pilgrims at his own expense to the city of Jeddah".
Saudi's King Salman also offered to dispatch private jets to transport pilgrims from Qatar to Jeddah.
Sheikh Abdullah was quoted as telling the Saudi prince that the ties between the two countries "are brotherly relations rooted in history".
The committee expressed its "satisfaction" with the decisions, but reiterated its demands that the hajj not be politicized and said the Saudi measures remain "unclear", particularly regarding the facilitation of hajj for foreigners residing in Qatar.Читайте также: Major Uber investor sues former CEO Travis Kalanick for fraud
The Saudi king on Wednesday ordered that Qatari pilgrims be allowed in as his guests.
The Iraqi leader's "no" came during a meeting with Bahraini Foreign Minister Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa in Baghdad.
The hajj takes place at the beginning of September this year.
In the statement Puntland also condemned all state and non state actors that support terrorism - referring to the Qatar government - that is wreaking havoc in Somalia today and called for an end to the crisis that is now threatening the stability of the region. Mecca is in Saudi Arabia, but Qataris were not allowed to fly there directly from Doha under the sanctions prior to the king's order.
A total of 5, 571 pilgrims from Kaduna State have been transported to Saudi Arabia, the State Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board's Spokesman, Yunusa Abdullahi says. Qatar was accused of aiding terrorists, the charge that Qatar completely denies.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
