UK urges restraint over disagreement between Saudi Arabia and Canada

The first source said Canada shared the view of foreign policy experts who believe the Saudi reaction reflected internal strains inside the kingdom, where 32-year-old Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is trying to push through domestic reforms.

Canadian authorities said they are "seriously concerned" about Saudi Arabia's freeze of new trade between the countries.

Coleman said it was unclear Tuesday how many students were sponsored by the Saudi Arabia government.

"There is a clear, uniquely Saudi dimension to this in the sense that in the last three years Saudi Arabia has been behaving very aggressively and assertively in the Middle East", he said, noting the blockade of Qatar and the war in Yemen.

On Tuesday, Finance Minister Bill Morneau appeared to downplay the financial impact of the diplomatic dispute. She was given the US International Women of Courage Award in 2012. Riyadh accused Ottawa on Tuesday of interfering in its internal affairs.

"All Saudia flights from/to Toronto, Canada will be suspended starting from 13 Aug 2018", the airline wrote in a statement posted on Twitter.

On Monday, Freeland doubled down on the position by saying Canadians expect their government's foreign policy to be guided by their values.

But Canada has stood firm, with Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland insisting it would defend human rights around the world. They said Canada "plans to seek help from the United Arab Emirates and Britain" in easing tensions with Saudi Arabia.

According to State, the USA has asked Saudi Arabia for more information about the detentions, and to publicize details about the status of legal cases.
