Abbas Sides with Saudi Arabia in Canadian Dispute

Saudi Arabia Expels Canadian Ambassador, To Withdraw Students From Canada Over Women's Rights Criticism

Universities across the country were scrambling to get information after Saudi Arabia suspended scholarships to Canada and planned to relocate its students already here.

It's also planning to pull all Saudi students at Canadian universities out of school and have them enroll elsewhere.

It insisted the activists were being detained lawfully and that the Canadian statements represented "blatant interference in the kingdom's domestic affairs" and "a major, unacceptable affront to the kingdom's laws and judicial process".

Besides having immediate effects on global relations and students on exchange between the two countries, the Canada-Saudi tension could mean some serious economic problems for Canada.

"Cambrian now has only a few students from Saudi Arabia and only a few applicants for fall 2018". He has ambitions to diversify the economy from oil exports and ease some social restrictions. "They don't know exactly what's going to happen to them", Castellanos said.

The Saudi government funds the tuition of many of those students.

Riyadh has a record of responding robustly to Western criticism under Mohammed bin Salman. Saudi Arabia has supported rebels in Syria who are losing a war against President Bashar Assad and its military become bogged down by the bloody and costly war it is waging in neighboring Yemen.

The announcement from the kingdom came after it said Sunday it would be halting all investment and trade activities in Canada. She said "we are in favour of a dialogue".
