The Hajj is an important pilgrimage to the Holy city of Mecca which adult Muslims must perform once in their lifetime.

This year's Hajj will be from June 26 to July 1.

One of those who welcomed the first batch of Filipino pilgrims is Philippine Embassy in Saudi Arabia Charge D'Affaires Rommel Romato who's joining us now from Capital, Riyadh.
