In an interview with Bloomberg, Saudi Arabia’s crown prince Mohammad bin Salman touched on a wide range of topics, including the diplomatic row with Canada.

The crown prince said that it is up to the Canadians regarding restoring ties with the kingdom, saying: “It’s up to them. They’ve taken actions against UN law and against diplomatic principles. They interfered in issues that are not Canadian. They’re not Canadian citizens, they’re not Canadian interests.”

He stressed during the interview which was done on Wednesday in the Saudi capital, Riyadh: “They’re totally Saudi domestic interests. And they’re not allowed to do that. The media can talk about any issue.”

The crown prince, in reply to a question on how to resolve the diplomatic rift,  said: “They have to apologize. Simply. And they have to know that they have made a mistake. I believe they know that they have made a mistake, but we will see how we can get things back again.”
