Canada & Saudi Arabia: Friends Again, Hooray!


Recommended for Preparatory Grades

Hey there! We’ve got some exciting news to share with you. Remember when Canada and Saudi Arabia had a big fight back in 2018? Well, guess what?

They have decided to be friends again! That’s right, they are rekindling their diplomatic ties and putting their differences behind them.

Important Details

  • It all started in 2018 when Canada’s foreign ministry posted some tweets criticizing Saudi Arabia’s human rights record. This made Saudi Arabia really mad, and they didn’t like Canada interfering in their affairs. They even recalled their ambassador from Canada and asked Canada’s ambassador to leave their country.
  • But now, after some time has passed, things have changed. The leaders of both countries, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, had a talk during a special meeting. They realized that they have some things in common and decided to restore their diplomatic relations.
  • To do that, they will appoint new ambassadors to represent their countries. Canada has already chosen Jean-Philippe Linteau, who has a lot of experience in foreign affairs. Saudi Arabia hasn’t announced their ambassador yet, but we will find out soon.
  • From all of this, we can understand that Canada and Saudi Arabia want to be friends again. They believe in mutual respect and have common interests. It’s important for countries to have good relationships with each other, even if they disagree sometimes. By restoring their ties, they can work together on important issues and help each other out.
  • So, it’s great to see that Canada and Saudi Arabia are making peace. It shows that even when there are disagreements, countries can find a way to come together and move forward. Let’s hope that they can build a strong friendship and continue to promote peace and understanding in the world.
