Talking to ICANA, Mohammad Reza Amir-Hassankhani underscored that  for sure all measures for performing Hajj rituals have already been made and Iran will resume dispatch of Hajj pilgrims immediately after 'obtaining necessary legal guarantees' from the host Saudi Arabia.

He made the remarks after a meeting with officials of the Hajj and Pilgrimage Organization of Iran who briefed the members of the commission on latest developments regarding arrangements made by the Saudi officials about dispatching of the Iranian pilgrims to this year’s Hajj rituals.

'Although all arrangements for dispatching pilgrims to Hajj have earlier been made, negotiations will carry on until full guarantee is achieved,' Amir-Hassankani said.

Iran stopped sending pilgrims to the annual Hajj rituals, due to the Saudis' mishandling of a human tragedy in Mina (September 2015) that killed thousands of Muslims, more that 460 Iranians, and also due to Saudis failure to guarantee safety of the Iranian pilgrims.
