- As part of a new strategy, Saudi Arabia has started early preparations for this year's Hajj, which takes place in June. Operations related to these plans began last month.

- Riyadh has already made rules for the Hajj this year. With these rules in place, countries would no longer be given special spots at holy sites. Instead, spots will be set aside for each country based on when contracts are finalized.

- The Saudi Ministry of Hajj's Tawfiq Al Rabiah said, "The country that signs early will be given priority in taking the right places in the holy places." See Also : Saudi Arabia to United States, no relations with Israel until independent Palestine state with 1967 borders
