  • Pakistan supports Saudi Arabia in diplomatic row with Canada

Even Canada's mother country, the United Kingdom has refrained from getting involved, as it seeks to improve post-Brexit trade relations with Saudi Arabia.

Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal. But an apology from Canada or a withdrawal of the human rights concerns Canada raised, is not on the table. Among the arrested activists is Samar Badawi, whose writer brother Raif Badawi was arrested in Saudi Arabia in 2012 and later sentenced to 1,000 lashes and 10 years in prison for insulting Islam while blogging.

Saudi Arabia also recalled its ambassador in Ottawa and halted all new investment and trade transactions with Canada, ordered almost 15,000 Saudi students in Canada to transfer to other countries, and suspended flights to Canada.

Ukraine is a major exporter of barley to Saudi Arabia, but the wheat is not sold in this country in 2016. "Canada made a big mistake. and a mistake should be corrected".

On August 6, Saudi Arabia told Saudi students studying in Canada that their scholarships for studying overseas are being suspended and to move their studies elsewhere, such as the United States or the United Kingdom. "It's a country that has a certain importance in the world and is making progress on human rights".

"We're working to fully understand the measures they might take", said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity given the sensitivity of the matter.

The Minister of Civil Service, Sulaiman Bin Abdullah Al-Hamdan, who also heads the Training and Scholarship Committee - an affiliate of his ministry, explained that the committee's secretariat has been working 24 hours a day to provide support for Saudi missions overseas to help the smooth transfer of those on scholarship in Canada to other countries and universities.

"Diplomatic talks continue", he said.

"It is diplomacy by tweet that is responsible", he said.

Trudeau, who was heavily criticized for his 2017 tweet welcoming refugees to Canada as the USA was clamping down on its asylum system, didn't apologize for making use of the medium in this situation. "I respect the rights of individual countries to make their decisions and speak for themselves". "We will continue to use the full range of methods of communication as appropriate".

Stewart said the political fight between the two nations is unnecessary and will hurt Canadians.

The move came after Germany's foreign minister last November remarked that Lebanon was a "pawn" of Saudi Arabia after the surprise resignation of its Prime Minister Saad Hariri while in Riyadh.
