Saudi Arabia has strongly condemned the attempted assassination of former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, the Kingdom’s foreign ministry said on Thursday.

Khan was shot in the shin on Thursday when his anti-government protest convoy came under attack in the east of the country.

The Kingdom stands with Pakistan and its people in the face of all threats to its security, stability, and development process, the ministry said. Saudi Arabia supports all efforts aimed at eliminating violence, extremism, and terrorism in all forms and wishes Pakistan and its people safety, stability, and prosperity, the ministry added.

Khan was six days into a protest procession bound for Islamabad, standing and waving to thousands of cheering supporters from the roof of a container truck, when the shots rang out.

Several in his convoy were wounded in the attack in Wazirabad, nearly 200 km (120 miles) from the capital. Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb said a suspect had been arrested
