Saudi takes serious procedures against Canada

SANAA, Aug. 6 (YPA) – The Saudi authorities decided on Monday to stop cooperation with Canada in training, scholarship and fellowship programs, Saudi official media said.

The move came after the declarations of Canadian foreign minister over arresting activists by the Saudi authorities.

Earlier, Saudi Arabia announced its refuse for the Canadian declaration after the final demanded to “immediate release'” for the activists.

Saudi Arabia took immediate measures after the Canadian official declaration, calling on the Saudi ambassador to Canada for consultation, considering the Canadian ambassador to Saudi Arabia as an undesirable person, announcing the freezing of all new trade and investment transactions between the Kingdom and Canada, and retaining its right to take further action.
