Canada ‘seriously concerned’ by escalating diplomatic spat with Saudi Arabia..

Saudi Arabia may be trying to “establish a new precedent with western states”, Dr Hisham A Hellyer, senior non-resident fellow at the Atlantic Council and the Royal United Services Institute in London, told The Independent. 

“If such states wish to have a fully normalised relationship with Riyadh, they should remain silent on domestic abuses in Saudi Arabia. And if western capitals so much as think twice before they issue such comments in the future, Riyadh would have gained something,” he said.
