Statement from the U.S. comes as Saudi Arabia lashes out at Canada.
Following Saudi Arabia’s massive overreaction to a Canadian tweet, the U.S. State Department has issued a statement.
The U.S. referred to both Canada and Saudi Arabia as “close partners,” and said “We have asked the Government of Saudi Arabia for additional information on the detention of several activists.”
Additionally, the statement said “We continue to encourage the Government of Saudi Arabia to respect due process and to publicize information on the status of legal cases.”
The U.S. also wants Saudi Arabia to publicize information on the legal cases against the jailed human rights advocates.
