Saudi Arabia has ordered the Canadian ambassador to leave the ultraconservative kingdom within 24 hours after his nation criticised the recent arrest of womens rights activists.
The Saudi Foreign Ministry also said it would freeze all new business between the kingdom and Canada.
Some 10% of Canadian crude oil imports come from Saudi Arabia.
Canadian officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment. It was not immediately clear if Ambassador Dennis Horak was in the kingdom.
Any further step from the Canadian side in that direction will be considered as acknowledgement of our right to interfere in the Canadian domestic affairs, the Saudi Foreign Ministry said in an extraordinarily aggressive statement.
Canada and all other nations need to know that they cant claim to be more concerned than the kingdom over its own citizens.
Oh dear, poor little Justin is in trouble again
Expect them to meddle in the next Canadian election.
>>Saudi Arabia has ordered the Canadian ambassador to leave the ultraconservative kingdom
ultrIslamist, there fixed it.
Would the Soviet Union’s prohibitions on pornography also have been branded “ultraconservative”? ultraconservative communists?
Should Canadians urge Justin to “man up”?
Wait What. Canada needs a pipe-line to send Canadian oil to the USA and yet Canada is sending Canadian money to the Middle East to buy Saudi oil to be shipped all the way to Canada?! Why does Canada bother to buy oil from any other country. Why doesnt Canada build its own pipeline to send Canadian oil to Canada?!
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman reportedly... told Abbas he has two months to either accept the Saudi proposal or leave office to make way for a new Palestinian leader... It reportedly proposes the establishment of limited Palestinian sovereignty over small portions of Judea and Samaria. The Gaza Strip, over which the Palestinians have had full sovereignty since Israel pulled its military forces and civilians out in 2005, would be expanded into the northern Sinai, thus providing economic and territorial viability to the envisioned Palestinian state... able to establish their capital in the Jerusalem suburb of Abu Dis.
Can’t decide which party is more obnoxioous, but turmoil among the Saudis is always a good thing.
This is what got Justin upset. His anti-Israel policies are in ruin. So he ragged Saudi about women. Saudi then tells Justin to take a hike.
This is a wonder to see.
Lol. The fake news is so hilarious.
“Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman reportedly.....”
“It reportedly proposes the .....”
There’s no way to confirm those “reportedly”.
Fake news, wishful thinking bait.
Saudis have a long way to go before they are fully out from under their rock.
Wait.... what? Canadian crude-oil IMPORTS? I thought Canada was an oil-exporting nation?
Now Justin....Stamp your feet and hold your breath until you turn blue. That’ll show’em.
When is Canada going to develop its own assets.
Trudeau is up for reelection and he’s in trouble at home ,maybe he’s looking for Female votes
The Saudis should have been our first take-down in the so-called WOT.
He better get a white dress and fly over there and apologize.
Yes, and a tablecloth with a bungee cord. Im sure the Saudies will be impressed with his attempt to share their culture
