Last Friday, Freeland criticized the arrest of Samar Badawi, a Canadian citizen and woman's right activist on Twitter, calling for the release of her and her brother Raif, who is also imprisoned.

The Business Insider reports that freaky threatening tweet was deleted shortly after multiple people pointed out the thinly veiled reference to the 9/11 terror attacks and that 15 of the 19 hijackers who carried out the atrocity were Saudi nationals.

The Russian Federation has announced that it stands firmly behind the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in its ongoing dispute with Canada over Canadian interference in Saudi affairs following the Kingdom's arrests of prominent feminist activists.

Over a hundred Saudi students studying at the University of Alberta could be affected by the political tension between Canada and Saudi Arabia.

In response, Saudi Arabia expelled Canada's ambassador, paused all new trade and investment and declared that some 15,000 Saudi students on government-funded scholarships would be transferred out of Canada.

The federal government has no plans to launch retaliatory economic measures against Saudi Arabia, Finance Minister Bill Morneau said Thursday in the wake of a series of actions taken by the Middle Eastern kingdom as it seeks to punish Canada in a still-unfolding diplomatic feud.

The senior official, who asked not to be identified due to the sensitivity of the diplomacy, said Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland had spoken with her counterparts in the two European nations.

Later in the day, Çavuşoğlu spoke to U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres over the phone, diplomatic sources said, without sharing any further details.

"Canada stands together with the Badawi family in this hard time, and we continue to strongly call for the release of both Raif and Samar Badawi", Freeland tweeted.

"We should lead by example with them, not sort of bludgeon our trading partners with our Canadian principles".

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau appeared to extend an olive branch on Wednesday, saying he would keep pressing Saudi Arabia on civil liberties but also saying the Gulf Arab state had made some progress on human rights.

Earlier this year, Bloomberg News reported that Saudi Arabia was scaling back its dealings with some German companies amid a diplomatic spat with Berlin.
