Addressing the gathering, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques congratulated his guests on the blessed Eid Al-Adh-ha, appealing to Allah Almighty that next year's Hajj occasion takes place as this country and the Islamic nation will be enjoying goodness and blessings.
He expressed his profound condolence on the victims of the stampede incident in Mina earlier today, offering the families of the martyred his warm condolence and the injured quick recovery.
"This sad accident, into which we have instructed the concerned authorities to launch investigation and provide us with the results as soon as possible, would never degrade the great and noble services you are extending to the guests of God to perform their rituals in ease and comfort", the monarch said.
He added that despite the results that would come out of the investigation, the developing and upgrading of the mechanisms and ways of official performance in Hajj season would not cease, God willing. He announced that he has instructed the concerned authorities to review the current plans and all arrangements, roles of Tiwafa agencies and other authorities and exert much effort to promote the level of organizing, managing the movement and passages through which pilgrims make their way to make the services more easy and comfortable.
The monarch vowed that all obstacles and difficulties will be removed to enable the guests of God to perform their rituals in comfort and reassurance as "our duty and responsibilities are great in terms of service of the guests of God, which is an honor to us, and towards which we appeal to Allah Almighty to help us succeed in fulfilling this great and noble mission".
