After a long and protracted war of words over the politicisation of Hajj, Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud has ordered the opening of the border with Qatar to allow pilgrims to carry out their annual pilgrimage to Makkah, official Saudi Press Agency said in Riyadh.

This decision came upon the mediation of Qatar’s envoy HE Sheikh Abdullah bin Ali bin Abdullah bin Jassem Al Thani with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, reported The Peninsula.

The Crown Prince emphasised the ‘historical relations between Saudi and Qatari people, and between the Saudi leadership and the royal family in Qatar,’ the statement said.

King Salman agreed to open the Salwa border crossing allowing all Qatari citizens who want to perform Hajj. The King ordered that all Qatari citizens be allowed to cross without the required electronic passes used for pilgrims based on the recommendation of Sheikh Abdullah.

King Salman has also ordered the transport of all Qatari pilgrims from King Fahad International Airport in Dammam as well as Al Ahsa International Airport be done free of charge and part of the King Salman bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud Program for Hajj and Umrah.

In addition to that, King Salman ordered to send Saudi Arabian Airlines planes to Doha to transport all Qatari pilgrims directly to Jeddah and for all their costs to be covered at his expense.
