Faisal bin Abdulrahman bin Muaammar, the supervisor general of the King Abdulaziz Public Library and the secretary general of King Abdulaziz Center for National Dialogue said Canada has miserably failed in the simplest rules of diplomacy as established by UN principles, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.
Bin Muaammar said “the brilliant minds” at the Canadian foreign affairs ministry do not have the honor of knowing the details of establishing the Saudi kingdom on the basis of dignity and loyalty to the country.
He added that “they also do not know how our leadership and people dealt with events that targeted our unity was and it still is wise and brave to confront apostate states and criminal gangs that (operate) under a religion cover and to (rehabilitate) individuals whose minds deviated because they thought freedom (is) to stab religion and patriotism and run behind the negative aspects of the western civilization before understanding its advantages.”
“The dreams of fake fame and holding on to the worst of what western civilization produced made them think this is the shortest way to gain the amiability of their new (patrons) with opinions, principles and ideas that voice their hatred to themselves, their civilization and their history after their families, societies and countries disowned them,” he also said.
Bin Muaammar added that the path of honor, dignity, development and modernization led by Saudi King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and which is the symbol of each Saudi man and woman who are loyal to their country “overcomes these pretenders”.
On Sunday, the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs recalled its ambassador in Canada and declared the Ambassador of Canada persona non-grata, giving him 24 hours to leave.
The kingdom also froze new trade and investment with Canada following its statement about “civil society activists”.
