Saudi says no room for mediation in Canada row

April FrancisAug 09, 2018

The crucified man, Elias Abulkalaam Jamaleddeen, stood accused of murder, theft, and attempted rape, according to Bloomberg.

It remains unclear how many Saudi patients will be affected by the decision.

Saudi Arabia called that "unfortunate, reprehensible, and unacceptable in relations between states".

The first official Russian comment on the Saudi-Canadian dispute came from the Russian Foreign Ministry, which confirmed Moscow's refusal to politicize human rights issues, noting that Saudi Arabia has the right to determine the course of its own internal reforms.

It's also stopped medical treatment programs in which Saudi patients are sent to hospitals in Canada.

The Saudi government announced Sunday it is withdrawing its ambassador to Canada and freezing all new trade and investment.

Saudi's asset sales may not have a big impact on the Canadian currency, although thin trading during the summer holiday could exacerbate that effect.

Saudi Arabia is selling Canadian assets in an escalating row after Ottawa criticized the arrest of a female activist, the Financial Times reported on Wednesday, citing sources.

Saudi Arabia's national airline suspended flights to and from Toronto on Tuesday.

The university is now in the process of trying to clarify with the Saudi Arabian Cultural Bureau whether the suspension applies to only King Abdul Aziz Scholarship students or all Saudi students at the university. Saudia Airlines has also announced it will suspend flights to and from Canada starting August 13.

But the United Kingdom and USA, two countries that maintain close ties with both Ottawa and Riyadh, have remained relatively silent.

The UK also expressed "strong" support for human rights, and said it "regularly" raises concerns with the kingdom, but did not mention the specific case of the Badawis. This follows several tweets by Ms. Freeland and her department last week in which the Canadian government called for the immediate release of arrested women's rights activists and decried Riyadh's recent crackdown on dissidents.

Saudi investments in Canada include G3 Global Holdings Ltd., a joint venture between Bunge Ltd. and Saudi Agricultural & Livestock Investment Co., which purchased the former Canadian Wheat Board in 2015.
