Egypt condemns Friday night's terrorist attack on an oil pipeline near the Bahraini capital Manama, the Egyptian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Saturday.

An oil fire broke out on the country's only pipeline from Saudi Arabia, temporarily halting oil supplies from its neighbor.

The Bahraini Foreign Ministry blamed Iran for the incident, calling it an act of sabotage, but Tehran denied the accusations.

Egypt asserted that its government and people stand by the Bahraini government and people against all terrorist and destructive actions that target their security and stability.

"This cowardly act will not succeed in interfering with the security and stability of the sister kingdom of Bahrain," the statement added.

National oil company Bapco on Sunday said it had fixed the pipeline, which would resume the flow of oil into the country.
