Canada is "seriously concerned" about Saudi Arabia's freeze of new trade between the countries, but standing its ground on human rights comments which set off a diplomatic row, a Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said.

"Canada will always stand up for the protection of human rights, very much including women's rights, and freedom of expression around the world," said Marie-Pier Baril, adding that Canada was "seeking greater clarity" from the Saudi government.
