The foreign ministry added in its short statement that Egypt reaffirms its support for Saudi Arabia’s measures to protect its security and stability as well as its citizens and residents.

The statement comes following an incident Friday when a man detonated a suicide vest as Saudi security forces attempted to arrest him.

The man, affiliated with the Islamic State terrorist group, was wanted by Saudi authorities for his involvement in a 2015 terrorist attack.

Three Saudi security forces personnel and a Pakistani resident were injured, while the suspect was killed.

The foreign ministry lauded in its statement the efforts of the Saudi authorities, while also wishing the injured a speedy recovery.
