Saudi Arabia and Canada have resolved their five-year-long dispute over human rights and announced the complete reestablishment of diplomatic relations, putting an end to the tension that resulted in the expulsion of the Canadian ambassador by Riyadh.
In an official statement released on Wednesday, the Canadian government disclosed that the breakthrough came after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau engaged in discussions with Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Forum summit in Bangkok on November 18, 2022.
According to the statement, both parties expressed their desire to restore diplomatic ties “based on mutual respect and shared interests.”
