Muslim World League supports Saudi response to ‘unjustified’ Canadian intervention

The Muslim World League (MWL) said in a statement on Monday that Saudi Arabia has the right to take a strict stance it finds appropriate towards Canada’s “unprecedented” intervention in the kingdom’s internal affairs.

The League’s statement comes in light of Saudi Arabia’s condemnation of Canada’s intervention in the Kingdom’s internal affairs.

The statement affirmed the need for committing to international conventions, principles, and norms, which dictate respecting the sovereignty of each country and not intervening in internal affairs.

The MWL said: “Stepping out of the legal framework and ethics of international affairs reflects in some ways the level of misjudgment that accompanies information that does not exceed the single-source analysis.”

This came after the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Sunday recalled its ambassador in Canada for consultation, and declared the Ambassador of Canada persona non-grata, giving him 24 hours to leave.

Saudi Arabia has decided to freeze all new trade and investment deals between the kingdom and Canada while retaining its right to take other measures, the Saudi Press Agency reported.
