Bahrain has pledged support for Saudi Arabia against any "external interference" in its internal affairs, the country's Foreign Affairs Ministry said on Monday.

The remarks came after Saudi Arabia gave the Canadian ambassador 24 hours to leave the country and recalled its own ambassador to Canada after the latter country criticized the recent arrest of women's rights activists.

Saudi Arabia also said it would suspend new trade and investment with Canada.

Bahrain's Foreign Affairs Ministry said it backs the steps taken by Saudi Arabia. "Whilst the Kingdom of Bahrain regrets Canada's position, based on totally erroneous information that has nothing to do with reality on the ground, it absolutely rejects its unacceptable intervention in the internal affairs of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia," stated the ministry.

The ministry said Bahrain affirms that it stands with Saudi Arabia in all the measures it has taken to maintain its security and stability.
