Saudi Arabia vow to cut ties with Canada over Canadian officials' comment
Some days ago the Saudi Arabian authority arrested Badawi on August 1 as part of an "unprecedented government crackdown on the women's rights movement that began on May 15, 2018, and has resulted in the arrest of more than a dozen activists. "
And this led some of the Canadian officials in the kingdom to accuse Saudi Arabian authority of violating human rights and demand for the immediate release of the activists imprisoned in the kingdom.
An amid the escalating tensions that are damaging economic and diplomatic ties between the countries, Saudi Arabia said on Monday that it would relocate about 7,000 Saudi scholarship recipients studying in Canada.
This move is in response to Canadian officials accusing Saudi Arabia of human rights violations and demanding the release of activists imprisoned in the kingdom, Saudi Education Ministry spokesman Mubarak al-Osaimi wrote on Twitter. "We will be able to accommodate this number of students in excellent countries such as the US, UK, Australia and New Zealand," Jasser bin Sulaiman Al Harbash, Saudi Arabia's deputy minister of education for scholarship, told state-run television.
The statement read "The Kingdom views the Canadian position as an affront ... that requires a sharp response to prevent any party from attempting to meddle with Saudi sovereignty," adding that it retained the "right to take further action."
However, efforts are being made to restore the diplomatic relations of the two countries.
