Pilgrim services and cooperation among holy shrines, priorities for Imam Reza shrine: deputy custodian
Imam Ali shrine in Najaf is hosting the event designed to bring the custodians of holy shrines in Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Lebanon together on July 22 to discuss ‘enhancing pilgrim services’ and ‘expanding relations and cooperation among holy shrines’.
In his trip to the Arab country, the deputy custodian of Imam Reza shrine Malek Rahmati also sat for talks with the representative of the Leader of Islamic Revolution in Iraq, Ayat. Seyyed Mojtaba Hosseini.
Pointing to the cooperation among the holy shrines in the meeting, Rahmati stressed: “Through our synergy and setting of common goals, we’ll do our utmost to provide quality services to pilgrims from the two countries”.
Talking about a similar gathering hosted by Imam Reza shrine in northeastern Iranian city of Mashhad (June 1 -11), the deputy custodian said the goal was increasing unity among the holy shrines and providing decent services to pilgrims.
He further expressed readiness to cooperate accordingly, adding: “providing healthcare services in health tourism is one of the priorities of Imam Reza shrine, which have been improved in terms of both quality and quantity”.
The first round of the event, which had been held in Iraq in May, focused on international relations of the holy shrines. The current round is set to wrap up the previous discussions and reach conclusions.
