"It is necessary that the Secretary-General remind the Riyadh government of its legal and humanitarian duties" added Rouhani.

Following the Mina stampede, President also ordered a cabinet special meeting being held on Friday in order to look into the different dimensions of Mina sad  incident and set up a special headquarter to do necessary follow ups in this regard.
