Saudi Arabia to freeze new trade with Canada, recalls ambassador


Saudi Arabia said Sunday it is ordering Canada's ambassador to leave the country and freezing all new trade and investment transactions with Canada in a spat over human rights.

"We consider the Canadian ambassador to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia persona non grata and order him to leave within the next 24 hours," Saudi Arabia's foreign ministry said on Twitter. Saudi Arabia is one of Canada's largest export markets in the region.

1. I love this governing by Twitter-Shitter crap.

SA needs to get their human rights act together; it is deplorable.

2. hilarious how SA is acting like Canada is the bad guy here

A freaking tweet was enough to send the royal family into hysterics. More governments around the world should have the courage to stand up to the sauds, i feel so bad for the women and activists there.
