Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz underlined on Monday Saudi Arabia’s ability to deal with the effects of the “cowardly” attack against the Abqaiq and Khurais Aramco oil facilities earlier this month.


He made his remarks during discussions in Jeddah with Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa.


King Hamad reiterated to King Salman his country’s condemnation of the attack against the facilities, saying it was a dangerous escalation against the security and stability of the region and global energy supplies.


He stressed that Bahrain stands with Saudi Arabia against any attempt to target its security and stability.


Manama will support Saudi Arabia in all measures it takes to preserve its security and stability, he added.
