    TEHRAN (Reuters) - About 90,000 Iranians are expected to perform Hajj this year and are due to begin arriving in Medina on Sunday after Tehran boycotted the pilgrimage last year amid tension with Saudi Arabia, an Iranian official said.
    "About 800 pilgrims are scheduled to leave Iran on three flights to Medina today," the head of Iran's Hajj organization, Nasrallah Farhman, told state media.
    Some 86,500 Iranians are expected to perform Hajj this year, he said, adding that 800 Musharraf went to Saudi Arabia to help the Iranians during the haj pilgrimage.
    Iran boycotted the pilgrimage last year after hundreds of people, many of them Iranians, died in a stampede in 2015 and after a diplomatic dispute between the two rivals for power in the region.
    Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said during a speech to pilgrims this year that the Iranians would never forget the "catastrophic events" that took place in 2015 and called on Saudi Arabia to ensure the security of all pilgrims.
    "Maintaining the security, dignity and prosperity of all pilgrims, especially Iranian pilgrims, is an important and permanent issue for the Islamic Republic of Iran," he was quoted as saying.
    "The security of pilgrims is the responsibility of the state that embraces the two holy Haramites."
    Riyadh broke off diplomatic ties with Iran last year after Iranian protesters stormed the Saudi embassy in Tehran after the execution of a Shi'ite cleric in Saudi Arabia in January 2016.
    In February this year, Iran sent a delegation to Saudi Arabia to discuss the return of Iranian pilgrims.
    But tensions between the two countries are still at an all-time high.
    Last month, Iranian officials pointed fingers at Saudi Arabia after it launched an organization calling for attacks on Iran's parliament in Tehran and on the tomb of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the founder of the Iranian republic, which killed at least 18 people. The Saudi denied any involvement. The website of Khamenei said that in his speech today he also called on all pilgrims to announce their positions on the recent events in Al-Aqsa Mosque and the "evil presence of America in the region" during the Hajj.
    Khamenei did not say what reaction the pilgrims expected.
