Canadian PM refuses to withdraw criticism of Saudi human rights record

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says his country will not withdraw its criticism of Saudi Arabia’s human rights record, rebuffing a call by the kingdom’s foreign minister, Adel al-Jubeir.

The Canadian PM made the remarks at a Wednesday press conference in Montreal, stressing that his country will “speak strongly and clearly” wherever it sees the need on questions of human rights.

His comments came shortly after Jubeir told reporters in Riyadh that Ottawa must recant its criticism of Riyadh’s decision to imprison two Saudi women’s rights activists if it seeks reconciliation with the kingdom.

The criticism had been raised last week by Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland, who condemned the Al Saud regime for detaining Nassima al-Sadah and Samar Badawi, the latter of whom has family ties to Canada.


Saudi Arabia severs ties with Canada
Saudi Arabia expels the Canadian ambassador and recalls its envoy after severing business ties with Ottawa.

Trudeau told the presser that his country always maintains constructive and positive ties with other nations across the world, but at the same time it must ensure human rights concerns are brought up.

That is “because Canadians expect that, and indeed people around the world expect that leadership from Canada,” he noted, stressing that his country will continue to stand up for human rights in all parts of the world in a “polite and constructive” way.

The US, which claims to be an advocate of human rights in the world, has yet to support Canada in its tension with Saudi Arabia. However, Trudeau said he cannot “impose on other countries what their responses and reaction should be.”

He added that he “respects the rights of other countries to speak for themselves.”

The Riyadh-Ottawa diplomatic brawl has already led to the expulsion of the Canadian ambassador to Saudi Arabia, and recalling of the Saudi envoy from Canada.

Saudis have also suspended all flights to and from the North American state, halted their trade with the country, and ordered its students studying in Canada and patients receiving treatment there to go elsewhere by the next month.
