Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan expressed on Thursday his country's full support to Saudi Arabia following last weekend attacks on the kingdom's oil facilities, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

"Pakistan fully supports the kingdom with all its capacities in confronting these sabotage acts," the state news agency cited him as saying during a meeting with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, in the Red Sea port city of Jeddah.

Earlier, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, received the Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, currently on a visit to the Kingdom.

During the meeting, the Prime Minister of Pakistan condemned the sabotage attack on Aramco plants in Biqayq and Khurais, stressing Pakistan's support for the Kingdom in the face of these blatant attacks, according to the Saudi Press Agency.

The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques expressed appreciation of Pakistan's position, stressing that the Kingdom is capable of dealing with the effects of this criminal act which aimed at destabilising the security and stability of the region and global energy supplies.

The meeting also reviewed the close relations between the two countries and the latest regional and international developments.
