A dispute that started in 2018 has been resolved with Canada and Saudi Arabia agreeing to mend their relations and appoint new ambassadors. During talks between Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, the decision to reestablish full diplomatic relations was made. The desire for mutual respect and shared interests in reestablishing their diplomatic ties was expressed by both nations.

Prior to the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Canada’s embassy in Riyadh demanded the release of activists for women’s rights who were being held in custody.

As a result, Saudi Arabia called back its ambassador, put trade restrictions in place, and put a stop to new trade agreements. Punitive trade sanctions will be lifted as a result of the recent decision, though the full effect on trade is still unknown.

In 2021, trade in oil, petrochemicals, and transportation equipment made Saudi Arabia Canada’s biggest export market in the region. The reestablishment of diplomatic ties demonstrates an understanding that engagement and constructive dialogue are essential to advancing shared interests and tackling problems like human rights.

Additionally, the action fits with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s initiatives to assert Saudi Arabia’s regional influence in the face of global challenges.
