Canada to seek help from UAE, UK to defuse dispute with KSA

Canada plans to seek help from the United Arab Emirates and Britain to defuse an escalating dispute with Saudi Arabia over jailed rights activists.

Riyadh accused Ottawa on Tuesday of interfering in its internal affairs.

Earlier, the Saudi government has recalled its ambassador to Ottawa, barred Canada's envoy from returning and placed a ban on new trade, denouncing Canada for urging the release of jailed rights activists.

Meanwhile, United States has urged Saudi Arabia and Canada to resolve a dispute that has strained ties between the two countries.

The State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said in a statement that both sides need to diplomatically resolve this row and US would encourage both governments to work out issues together.
