Saudi Arabia Suspends Trade With Canada, Expels Ambassador


Saudi Arabia announced on Sunday night it had suspended new trade and investment with Canada after the Canadian foreign ministry urged Riyadh to release arrested civil rights activists, Reuters reported.

The kingdom also gave the Canadian ambassador 24 hours to leave the country and recalled its own ambassador to Canada, said a statement by the Saudi foreign ministry.

The statement declared that the foreign ministry “will freeze all new trade and investment transactions with Canada whilst retaining its rights to take further action.”
