Saudi official says Canada dispute won't affect oil sales

Pakistan supports Saudi Arabia in diplomatic row with Canada

"These are relationships that we expect our federal government to continually navigate", Moe said, "And [assure] we have the opportunity to provide those products logistically while we continue to work with these nations on issues such as human rights".

While Saudi Arabia, inflamed by Canada's demand that the kingdom release human rights activists, have instituted various measures, including freezing all new trade with Canada, one commodity will not be affected.

Canada is quietly nudging allies including Germany and Sweden for help with resolving its row with Saudi Arabia, a government source confirmed Thursday.

"When it comes specifically to the relations between Canada and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, we have been following the developments in diplomatic relations between the two", she said.

"We're paying close attention to this situation, of course, because we wanted to understand the impacts", he said in Ottawa after being asked if the government meant to hit back at Saudi Arabia with economic reprisals of its own.

"Canada will always speak strongly and clearly in private and in public on questions of human rights", he said.

The remarks by Khalid al-Falih show the limits of the ongoing quarrel and may calm some of the bluster surrounding the dispute that suddenly erupted Monday over Canadian diplomats' tweets asking the kingdom to release the detained activists.

"Saudi Arabia does not interfere in the affairs of Canada in any way".

But while Saudi Arabia has been getting messages of support from regional allies and even rivals like Russia, Canada's Western allies - even those who had experienced similar Saudi outbursts in the past, such as Germany and Sweden - have made a decision to keep out of the latest dispute, at least publicly.

But several of those going say they used a contact number provided by the airline, but there was no answer when they telephoned.

"I think people understand that in today's world there are a broad range of communications tools available to individuals, to countries, to share messages, to make statements", he said.

A trip package can cost around CAN$15,000 and Omar Alghabra of the Canadian Foreign Affairs Ministry said there is a lot of "legitimate anxiety".
