Germany appreciates Saudi Arabia's readiness to cooperate in investigating the recent terrorist attacks in the German cities Wuerzburg and Ansbach, German Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Sawsan Chebli said Thursday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Last week, a high-ranking Saudi government official said that the kingdom would make every effort to reveal the background of the attackers amid information that one of the attackers in Bavaria had been in touch with an Islamic State member via phone with a Saudi number.

Chebli was quoted as saying by the Saudi Gazette newspaper that Germany, along with other Western countries, regularly cooperated with Saudi Arabia in the fight against terrorism.

On July 24, a Syrian national, whose asylum application had been turned down and who was to be deported to Bulgaria after living in Germany for a year, detonated a bomb in the Bavarian city of Ansbach, killing himself and injuring 15 bystanders.

Earlier in July, an Afghan refugee attacked train passengers in Wuerzburg with an ax and wounded several people. Police subsequently shot the attacker dead.
