Saudi Arabia on Sunday praised the Iraqi government's stance towards an attack that took place earlier on the Bahraini Embassy, thought to be carried out by elements from the Iran-backed IMIS.


"The Kingdom welcomes the Iraqi government’s position on this unacceptable attack and the measures taken to provide the necessary protection for the safety of the Bahraini mission,” the Saudi state news agency said, quoting a source at the foreign ministry.


The Kingdom condemned an attack on Bahrain's embassy in Baghdad, which was carried out by protesters claimed to be objecting to Manama's hosting of the US-led economic conference last week, the National reported.

The Kingdom of Bahrain recalled its ambassador from Iraq following the attack on Thursday night, when more than 200 Iraqi protesters broke into the courtyard of the embassy.
