Algeria supports Saudi Arabia in its diplomatic row with Canada

Algeria supports Saudi Arabia in its diplomatic row with Canada”

Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu on Friday held a phone conversation with his Saudi counterpart Adel al-Jubeir, the ministerial spokesperson said.

In a tweet sent on August 2, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland expressed alarm that Saudi Arabia had imprisoned human rights activist Samar Badawi.

Saudi Arabia is the company's third biggest market outside Canada, netting it revenues of almost a billion Canadian dollars (C$992m) a year ago.

Moe said Canada has recently seen challenges in its relationship with India, China and now Saudi Arabia. "Canada made a big mistake. and a mistake should be corrected".

Saudi Arabia plans to pull out thousands of students and medical patients from Canada over the spat.

He went on: "We will continue to defend Canadian values and human rights". "It's a country that has a certain importance in the world and is making progress on human rights".

"We should lead by example with them, not sort of bludgeon our trading partners with our Canadian principles". Since the crisis began, Saudi state-run television and other channels backing the kingdom have been airing programs criticizing Canada and accusing it of jailing "prisoners of conscience".

Saudi Arabia set in motion a series of steps to show its displeasure with its ally Canada through diplomatic and economic measures.

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

But this year, the uncertainty of getting back to Canada is causing anxiety.

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 the right decisions and speak for themselves". "We will continue to use the full range of methods of communication as appropriate".

A trip package can cost around CAN$15,000 and Omar Alghabra of the Canadian Foreign Affairs Ministry said there is a lot of "legitimate anxiety". He said the Trudeau government's apparent preference for social media over person-to-person communications is a mistake.

"Prince Mohammed thinks he has license from the U.S.to confront Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, exploiting perceived tension between Washington and Ottawa over trade that emerged at the end of a Group of Seven summit in June", wrote Bloomberg's Nick Wadhams.
