ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Pakistan has condemned the missile attack on Saudi Arabia carried out on December 19, which was the third missile attack targeted at the Kingdom from Yemen in less than two months.
The attack was successfully intercepted by the Saudi-led Coalition by the grace of God Almighty before it could cause any damage.
In a press release issued in Islamabad on Wednesday, the Foreign Office said that the increasing frequency and ferocity of the missile attacks, targeted at innocent civilians by Houthi rebels, pose a threat to regional peace and security and is therefore, highly condemnable.
“Pakistan strongly believes that a political solution to the ongoing Yemen crisis is the only way to ensure regional peace and stability,” the Foreign Office said.
“Pakistan stands firmly with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in confronting terrorism in all its forms and manifestations.”
The Foreign Office said that Pakistan reaffirms unequivocal support for the Kingdom and reiterates that in case of any violation of its territorial integrity or any threat to Harmain Sharifain, Pakistan will stand shoulder to shoulder with the government and people of Saudi Arabia.
