Bangladesh has conveyed its deep concern at the recent multiple ballistic missile attacks by the Houthi rebels aimed at Riyadh and other bordering cities of South Western parts of Saudi Arabia. The missile attacks were however successfully intercepted by the Saudi Air Defense forces.
“Bangladesh staunchly opposes such unilateral acts by the Houthi rebels. These are provocative acts and have an adverse impact on regional peace and stability,” said the Foreign Ministry in a statement on Tuesday.
These acts also threaten international peace and security in the long run, the statement reads.
“We believe that the brotherly people and government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia have the right to defend itself against any security threats,” said the Foreign Ministry.
“We stand by the people and government of Saudi Arabia in their effort to counter such aggressive acts that threatens regional peace and stability,” it added.
