Canada asks for help in Saudi dispute

Pakistan supports Saudi Arabia in diplomatic row with Canada Trudeau stands firm amid dispute with Saudi Arabia

As in Saudi Arabia, Canada has interfered in Russian internal affairs to promote its left-wing ideology, condemning Russia's policy on LGBTQI rights and working with NGOs to illegally smuggle LGBTQI individuals out of the country. It has since recalled thousands of Saudi students studying in Canada, moved to transfer any Saudi patients out of Canadian hospitals and barred the import of Canadian wheat.

Morneau said his department has been closely watching the situation, though he acknowledged it has been evolving by the day.

"We do not wish to have poor relations with Saudi Arabia", he added, saying Ottawa recognizes that Riyadh "has made progress when it comes to human rights".

"We're not considering any responses".

Thus, the state Agency of the Kingdom provided guidance to exporters of grain to abandon the purchase of wheat and barley in Canada through worldwide tenders.

"I don't think things like this should be handled through Twitter", he said.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Dr. Mohammed Faisal has said that Pakistan was following with vast concern the "crisis" in relations between Saudi Arabia and Canada, and also that Pakistan, "places on record its solidarity with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia". But uncertainty over the state of affairs between the two countries continued to hang over Ottawa.

The senior official, who asked not to be identified due to the sensitivity of the diplomacy, said Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland had spoken with her counterparts in the two European nations. "We can't do it for them, they need to resolve it together", Nauert said in a briefing. But in an apparent effort to safeguard its economic interests, Saudi energy minister Khalid al-Falih said the dispute will not affect state oil giant Aramco´s clients in Canada.

Saudi Arabia retaliated by expelling the Canadian ambassador and froze new trade ties with Canada.

"Canada will always speak strongly and clearly in private and in public on questions of human rights", he said.

The Saudi Arabian Cultural Bureau's Canadian website claims that 95 per cent of foreign medical trainees in Canada are from the kingdom.

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.

Analysts believe Saudi Arabia holds somewhere between $10 billion and $25 billion in Canadian currency.
