“If the existing problems with the Saudi government were merely the issue of the hajj… maybe it would have been possible to find a way to resolve it and put it in the right direction,” he added.
“Unfortunately, this government by committing crimes in the region and supporting terrorism in fact shed the blood of Muslims in Iraq, Syria and Yemen.” Hassan noted.
‎The barbs traded by both countries ahead of the start of the annual hajj pilgrimage on Saturday adds to an already frosty relationship which is already at rock bottom.
