Europe enters the fray, a bit quiet albeit, but vocal enough to defend their democratic brethren: Canada.
This conflict has left both Riyadh and Ottawa in diplomatic controversy, with an incredible lack of respect emanating from the Saudi side: threat of terrorism in a tweet, and the expulsion of Canada’s ambassador to Saudi Arabia, over Canada’s condemnation for Saudi Arabia’s charges against human rights.
EU Chief of Diplomacy, Federica Mogherini issued a statement, essentially, insisting that the EU was working closely with the Kingdom in order to clarify the circumstances revolving around the arrest of a human rights advocate.
The now-deleted tweet by a high-up Saudi Arabian admin left Canadians in serious shock:
