DUBAI: The Muslim World League has condemned the Canadian government’s blatant interference in Saudi Arabia’s internal affairs in a statement released Monday.

The statement said the sovereignty of states needed to be respected and that international conventions, principles and norms had to be observed, adding that other countries should not interfered in other countries.

The statement added that the Kingdom was governed by its constitution, regulations and legal processes which were widely known, much like the legal systems of other countries.

It stressed Saudi Arabia’s right to take a firm stand towards the “outrageous and unprecedented diplomatic failure,” of Canada.

Saudi Arabia, the statement added, was characterized by the enforcement of Islamic law, and that it was wrong for people to compromise this.
